NEW YORK (AP) — A city bus and a tour bus have collided in Queens, and the Fire Department of New York says 17 people have been hurt, seven of them severely.
The buses collided around 6:15 a.m. Monday at an intersection in the Flushing neighborhood.
One of the buses also hit a building. Firefighters have extinguished a blaze there.
A photo tweeted by the NYPD’s 109th Precinct shows the buses side-by-side facing opposite directions, with the city bus slightly tilted to one side.
A Fire Department photo on Twitter shows firefighters responding outside the building.
