OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say bus was struck by gunfire in Oakland, leaving four passengers with minor injuries when the bus driver suddenly sped up to escape the shots.

AC Transit spokesman Clarence Johnson says about a half-dozen rounds hit the Line 1 bus, breaking its rear window, shortly after midnight Saturday.

Johnson says nine passengers were on the bus at the time, and no one was shot. The four who were injured when the bus driver hit the gas pedal were taken to the hospital for treatment.

It wasn't immediately clear why the bus was targeted.

The Oakland Tribune says an AC Transit bus was struck by stray bullets from a nearby shooting on Jan. 25. Two passengers were treated at the scene for minor injuries from broken glass.
