An AC Transit bus driver ended up in the hospital after a bus rolled down an embankment in the Oakland Hills Sunday afternoon.

Nobody was on the bus when it knocked out a tree and landed in the playground of a church's preschool on Campus Drive. The bus was in service along a route near Merritt College when it left the road.

Oakland police have not yet determined if the bus had a mechanical problem or if driver error is to blame.
