Bx10 bus accident Monday in Spuyten Duyvil

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Monday afternoon there was an accident involving a New York City Transit bus on the Bx10 route and a car. The car fared much worse than the bus it seems. The driver of the car had to be cut out with the Jaws of Life. This section of Johnson Avenue was closed for a while and all buses and cars coming down Kappock Street had to be diverted to Palisade Avenue. And all through this there was no mention of the service change on mta.info.

My wife happened upon the accident scene and took the following cell phone photos.

Note: the bus involved in the accident was 2009 Orion VII Next Generation (NG) Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) #4379.

CRASH and BURN
