SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A San Diego Gas & Electric worker suffered serious injuries after the company vehicle he was driving collided with the back of a school bus on a Barrio Logan street Tuesday.

The crash happened just before 8:30 a.m. at the intersection of South 28th Street and Boston Avenue, according to San Diego Police.

Police said the San Diego Unified School District bus was stopped at a red light when, for reasons still unknown, a white Mitsubishi Outlander SUV crashed into the back of the bus.

Police at the scene confirmed the SD Unified bus did not have any students inside at the time and the bus driver was not hurt.

Responding emergency crews had to cut off the top of the SDG&E vehicle to extract the injured 53-year-old driver and take him to UC San Diego Medical Center.

Police told ABC 10News the man underwent surgery Tuesday afternoon. His condition remains unknown.
