A San Diego Gas & Electric SUV plowed into the back of a stationary school bus at a Barrio Logan intersection Tuesday, gravely injuring* the 53-year-old SDG&E employee behind the wheel of the company vehicle, authorities said.

The San Diego Unified School District bus, which had no students aboard, was stopped for a red light at Boston Avenue and South 28th Street when the southbound Mitsubishi Outlander rear-ended it shortly before 8:30 a.m., according to police.

Medics took the utility worker, whose name was not immediately available, to UC San Diego Medical Center, where he was admitted in critical condition.

The bus driver suffered no injuries in the crash, according to Officer Sarah Foster of the San Diego Police Department.
