The bus was headed for Newark’s Penn Station when it collided with a cab. NJ TRANSIT spokesman William Smith said the cab cut in front of the bus, causing the crash, WCBS 880’s Levon Putney reported.
The impact carried both vehicles about 100 feet across the street and then sent the bus into a storefront, causing structural damage. The cab apparently hit a crosswalk sign.
“I’m glad no one was walking by when that happened,” said bus passenger Larry Yancey. “This is a busy area. There are a lot of people walking up and down the street all the time.”
