A New Jersey Transit train struck a New Jersey Transit bus Saturday after the bus became stuck on the snow-covered train tracks in Pennsauken.

The 25 passengers were evacuated before the Atlantic City line train hit it at about 7:30 p.m., says N.J. Transit spokesman Dan Stessel. A train engineer had minor injuries from the crash.

A new bus picked up the bus riders. The 38 train passengers were to get a ride on another train once the damaged bus could be removed from the crossing.

Officials were urging motorists to stay inside. Speed limits on some major roadways were reduced.

At 9 p.m. NJ Transit announced it was suspending bus service for the night. Buses were to stop after their current runs were completed.
