Three people were injured Wednesday morning when a driver lost control of her car and crashed into a bus stop near 35th and Dunlap avenues.

Phoenix Fire Department paramedics treated at least one person for serious injuries.

The driver suffered minor injuries. Phoenix Police said the woman behind the wheel was lucid when they spoke with her.

Witness John Pulvino narrowly escaped getting caught in the accident. He said it sounded like an explosion when the car hit the bus shelter.

"I see the bus shelter up in the air, probably about 7 to 10 feet, and there was a man on top of it that was walking behind me with his wife.

"I see her bouncing off the front of the bus shelter at the same exact time that the shelter is coming down.

That car was like, accordioned up against that bus shelter. ... It was terrible."
