ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Riders on a MARTA bus were asked to stay on the bus after wires from a power line hooked the right mirror of the bus in Atlanta late Wednesday. 

Someone hit a pole on Harwell Road and Collier Drive, which caused the wires to come down, according to a spokesperson with the Atlanta Police Department.

The police spokesperson says the driver left the vehicle and ran.

Meanwhile, while the MARTA bus was not involved in the accident, a MARTA spokesperson says riders were asked to remain on the bus out of caution due to the downed wires.
