Five people were injured in a car crash involving five vehicles Tuesday morning in central Tokyo, but none were in a serious condition, local police said.

A truck rammed into three pedestrians and hit four vehicles when it entered a crossroad in the capital’s Shinbashi business district at about 9:45 a.m., they said.

The male truck driver in his 30s, the male driver of a passenger vehicle in his 40s and three pedestrians in their 20s to 50s were injured, the police said.

Investigators suspect the truck ignored a red light and collided into the pedestrians. The truck later hit a car and a bus as well as a truck and a tour bus waiting in the opposite lane.

The tour bus was carrying about 40 children from a preschool who were out on a trip. None of them were injured.
