DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a train and a public bus collided in an Atlanta suburb, causing traffic tie-ups at the start of the morning rush hour.


      Police in Decatur tell WSB-TV  that no passengers were on the bus at the time, and no injuries were reported. The bus is part of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, or MARTA.


      The crash happened around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday near McDonough Street and West Howard Avenue in Decatur, just east of Atlanta.


      Video from the Atlanta station shows the bus alongside the train a few feet from the intersection, which was closed to traffic as authorities investigate what caused the accident.
