New York Bus Goes Over Rails and Injures 8

Gracie McHenry, Writer

Thursday night around 11pm, a crash happens injuring 8 people. There were many photos shared to twitter by bystanders. Showing the city bus hanging over the expressway barrier and balancing on the street below. One person was severely injured in the crash, while three people suffered non-life threatening and four people suffered minor injuries. The bus took an approximate fall of 50ft and the injuries were consistent with a fall from such a height. No other pedestrians or cars were involved. Emergency services worked into the morning to ensure that all the fuel and other hazardous materials were secure before lowering the bus off the interpass. It is too early to determine the cause of the accident, but they do know that the route usually took a left turn onto the interstate ramp, but it was missed. They are conducting a full investigation and will implement lessons learned in order to prevent it from happening again.
