“This was a single vehicle accident,” the spokesperson said. “A ‘pedal pub’ with multiple passengers was trying to negotiate a turn but was apparently going too fast and turned over. A number of people were injured but nobody was critical.”

All 15 people who were hurt have non-life threatening injuries, according to the report.

The Atlanta Fire Battalion Chief Jason McClain said that this isn’t an everyday call, but they do train for incidents like this.

One person who was at the scene said that she saw the shuttle flip on its side, and that people stepped in fast to help free trapped passengers.
