Aug. 29--Two people were injured after a Nemo's shuttle bus and a car crashed into the historic Leland building on Bagley this afternoon, Detroit police said.
The crash happened about 5 p.m. when the bus was going west on Bagley, said Detroit Police Officer Jennifer Moreno. When the bus reached Cass Avenue, a blue Nissan pulled in front of it, causing the bus to crash into the car and forcing both vehicles to slam into the front of the Leland, Moreno said.
The crash left an 86-year-old man, who had been standing outside the building's front doors, with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, Moreno said. The driver of the Nissan had minor injuries.
No arrests were made in the crash, and alcohol was not thought to be a factor, Moreno said. She said she did not know how many people were on the bus at the time of the crash.
Bagley was partially open shortly after the crash, she said.
The 20-story Leland building originally opened as the Detroit Leland Hotel in 1927.
Officials at the Leland and Nemo's could not immediately be reached for comment.
