The family of one of the drivers involved in the DDOT bus crash this afternoon is now speaking out. They claim there's no way their loved one triggered this accident, injuring several people.

Workers inside Sun Valley Foods on Dexter are amazed at what they saw outside their office - a DDOT bus sitting in the garage area, after careening through a brick wall this afternoon.

Five were inside the bus, including the 60-year-old driver, who was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Julius Davis says it was his 18-year-old brother, Elijah Brown, who was behind the wheel of the white SUV.

Investigators say the teenager was speeding down Doris, slamming into the bus, setting off this chain reaction.

Davis claims there's no way his little brother caused this accident. Davis claims his brother didn't blow a stop sign, and he was on his way, in a suit, to a business meeting.

We're told Brown has a collapsed lung, some other cuts and bruises, but was able to walk away from the SUV.

Photos of the aftermath, show the bus sitting in the receiving area, where thankfully no one was working at the time.

Three other were injured, including a 45-year-old wheelchair bound woman.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
