Ten injured–none seriously– after bus strikes cab


Oct. 28, 2014 By Michael Florio

Ten people were injured yesterday after an MTA bus was involved in a seven-car pileup, according to an MTA spokeswoman.

Just before 3:00 pm a Q 100 bus, which serves Rikers Island, struck the front side of a cab that ran a traffic light at 21st Street and 23rd Ave. The bus then went on to strike a minivan and a truck.

The bus then hit a parked car, which, in turn, sent that vehicle into a car in front of it. That car then struck another car.

In total, 10 people were injured, including the bus operator.

The injured were then taken to area hospitals. None of the injuries were considered life threatening, according to an FDNY spokesman.

The MTA spokeswoman said it is unclear whether the people injured were in the other vehicles or were bus passengers.
