Three Killed and Dozens Injured in New York City Bus Crash

A New York City MTA bus and a Dahlia charter bus collided in Queens on Monday morning, killing three people and injuring more than a dozen others, DNA Info reported. The buses were reportedly moving so quickly that they “spun around” upon impact and ran over the curb, according to MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota. The buses killed one pedestrian and crashed into a nearby Kennedy Fried Chicken. The charter-bus driver and an MTA bus passenger were also killed in the crash. “It's a tragic morning here in Flushing, Queens. It’s hard to compare to anything I’ve ever seen—the sheer destruction from the impact of this collision,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. Dahlia buses have a history of driving at excessive speeds and have been involved in numerous accidents.
