Bus Accident Injures Ten


Ten people were taken to local hospitals after an MTA bus driver swerved to avoid hitting a child and crashed into a fence in Edgemere on Sunday evening. Sources say that the youngster darted in front of the bus at Beach 44 Street and Beach Channel Drive at about 7:30 p.m. An MTA spokesperson told The Wave that the drive veered away from the boy, who had stepped off the curb in the middle of the block. The injuries were reportedly minor and all of the passengers who had minor injuries were treated and released, as was the unidentified driver of the bus. Photo by Benjamin Franklin.
