The crash was at 5:36 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of Ballantyne Street and East Madison Avenue, said Sonny Saghera of Heartland Fire & Rescue.
Witnesses told police that the bus was going east on Madison with a green light when it was hit on the passenger side by the SUV, which had been travelling north on Ballantyne, El Cajon police Lt. Taylor said.
