5 injured after MTA bus crashes into building in NYC
A MTA bus crashed into a building in Brooklyn, NYC, injuring 6 residents. The accident occurred at the intersection of St Marks and Ralph Avenue in Crown Heights. The driver of the B45 bus was driving East on St Marks Avenue and took a too wide right turn to head South on Ralph Avenue. He struck a mailbox and a dump truck before crashing into a residential building located at the intersection of the two avenues . The bus was empty at the time of the accident but the bus driver as well as 5 other residents of the building sustained minor injuries. Thankfully no one was standing at the bus stop located in front of the building and the apartment that was destroyed by the bus was empty at the time of the accident. The neighbors were at home and the bus only missed them by inches. The Department of Building issued vacate orders for the two apartments next to the crash site.
