Eleven Hurt in Bus vs SUV Collision in NYC

News Feb 13, 2013

A car crashed head-on with a stopped MTA bus this morning after it collided with another car -- injuring 11 people, authorities said.

The M10 bus was at a bus stop at 6:45 a.m. on Broadway and West 135th Street when an SUV came at the bus head on, the MTA said.

A livery cab was heading north down Broadway and when it tried to make a U-turn it clipped an SUV, witnesses and MTA said.

“I was headed north and I was making a U-turn. The Jeep was going north, after that I don’t know what happened,” said Amadou Barry, 64, the driver of the Lincoln Towncar.

An SUV was clipped by a livery cab that tried to make a u-turn on Frederick Douglas Blvd and W. 135th Street. The SUV then crashed head-on into a bus that was sitting in the bus stop.

 The SUV lost control and collided with the stopped bus.

“The cab hit the other car and it ran into the bus. A couple of people in front of the bus went flying,” said a 13-year-old boy who was on the bus.

In total 11 people had non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to area hospitals, including St. Lukes Hospital, Harlem Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital, fire officials said.

Five of those sustained serious injuries and six had minor injuries, the FDNY said.
