    A Miami-Dade Transit Metrobus remains inside of a clothing business in Little Haiti as officials work to determine what to do with the scene.

    The incident occurred in Little Haiti at the intersection of NW 2nd Avenue and NW 54th Street at about 9 a.m. on Sunday. A witness told NBC 6 that he helped open the doors on the bus to help people out, adding that the bus driver's head was injured.

    “It sounded like a demolition," Stenley Joseph said.

    The bus slammed into a support beam outside of the Omega Fashion Store located at 5401 NW 2nd Ave. Officials said a separate vehicle and the bus collided, which diverted the bus into the building.
