WINNIPEG -- A Tuesday morning collision involving a Winnipeg Transit bus in Downtown Winnipeg is impacting traffic in the area.

Winnipeg police told CTV News Winnipeg that traffic on southbound Main Street between William and McDermot Avenues will likely be impacted well into morning rush hour.
Crews from Manitoba Hydro and the city’s traffic services are still working in the area, and drivers are asked to find alternate routes for their morning commute.
Images from the scene show that the traffic lights work at the intersection, but one light standard has been knocked down and is being repaired.
Winnipeg police tweeted that the limited lanes of traffic on southbound Main Street between William and McDermot Avenues are now reopened.
Two people were taken to hospital in stable condition.
