13 hurt in Bronx MTA bus crash
NEW YORK - One person is in critical condition and 12 others suffered lesser injuries after an accident involving an MTA bus in the Bronx.
The bus apparently hit a pillar for an elevated train track in the area of Boston Rd. and W. Farms Rd.
The patient in critical condition was the bus's driver, who was treated for cardiac arrest. Authorities said they are currently unsure if the cause of the arrest was the accident, or if the arrest caused the accident.
The 44-year-old driver, who also hit her head, was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital where she is currently in critical condition.
The other 12 patients' injuries were considered to be non-life threatening. They were also sent to nearby hospitals.
Police are continuing to investigate the incident to determine the crash's exact cause.
