MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Three people were taken to a hospital Monday after a rock slide struck a car and a transit shuttle vehicle at West Virginia University.

The university says the incident occurred along U.S. Route 19 in Morgantown after rains fell in the area. One boulder destroyed the front end of a small car. Another hit a Personal Rapid Transit system vehicle used to shuttle students between the university's campuses.

Two people from the PRT car and one from the car on the road were taken to a hospital for evaluation.

The nature of the injuries wasn't immediately known. WVU said the shuttle system will be closed indefinitely, and buses will be used in its place.
