A north side man was charged Tuesday with a felony count of aggravated battery after he allegedly attacked a Chicago Transit Authority bus driver and caused a crash.

The driver lost control and crashed into a parked car in the Albany Park neighborhood, police said. The driver was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital with injuries to his back and right shoulder as well as abrasions to his head.
