Grayson, the local newscaster reported, was driving his Mercedes when he “ran a red light and slammed into [a] bus.” Two passengers on the bus were injured and taken to the hospital, but are expected to recover, WESH reported, adding that police deemed Grayson at fault for the incident and will cite him. Grayson’s car was significantly damaged.

The Orlando Sentinel adds that the passengers’ injuries were “slight.”
