Three people died and 16 others were hurt when an MTA bus and a private tour bus collided in Queens early Monday — a dramatic wreck that sent at least one of the vehicles careening into a row of storefronts, igniting a fire.
One pedestrian pinned under the bus on the sidewalk died at the scene. Seven critically injured people were initially taken to hospitals; two of them later died, including the driver of the Dahlia tour bus, authorities said.
The driver of the MTA bus is hospitalized with non-critical injuries, officials said. There were 15 people on the bus at the time. Read more at NBC.
