New York City Bus Accident Leaves 11 People Injured
With over 8.2 million people living in New York City, traffic accidents are a daily occurrence across the city. Last week was no exception. Eleven people were sent to the hospital after a bus, a sports utility vehicle, and limousine crashed into each other.
The for-hire limousine, also known as a livery cab, attempted a U-turn at Broadway and 135th street the morning of Feb. 13 when it struck the SUV in the Harlem section of Manhattan.
According to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the driver of the SUV then lost control of the vehicle and struck a parked bus head on. Witnesses claimed a couple people in front of the bus “went flying.”
Fortunately, the 11 people hurt in the accident were all taken to local hospitals but did not suffer any life-threatening injuries. Of the 11 injured, five were serious injuries and the other six were only minor.
