Officer Rodger Martinez speaks with Officer Michele Phillips after she was involved in a crash with a Muskogee County Transit bus on Friday afternoon on north Main Street.

Two passengers on a Muskogee County Transit bus were taken to Muskogee Regional Medical Center as the result of a collision between the bus and a police car Friday afternoon.

Jamesetta Russell was in good condition but was still being treated in the emergency room at around 7 p.m. Sharon Townsend was treated at MRMC and released, said a hospital spokeswoman.

The accident occurred at about 3:20 near Main Street and Shawnee Bypass. The bus, being driven by Willie Lambert Jr., 74, of Muskogee, was at a stop sign on the access road on the west side of Main Street when he pulled out in front of a northbound Muskogee police car being driven by Michele Phillips. Lambert was cited for failure to yield.

Neither Lambert, Phillips nor a third passenger on the bus were injured.
