NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Surveillance cameras were rolling Monday afternoon as a cab and a school bus collided in Brooklyn, the force causing the bus full of children to flip.
Nine people – including six children – were injured the accident, which occurred around 3:40 p.m. Monday at Halsey Street and Marcy Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
As CBS 2’s Tracee Carrasco reported, the dramatic video shows the green New York City Boro cab inching through the intersection, followed by the exact moment of impact when the taxi collided with this yellow mini-school bus full of children.
The impact sent the taxi flying into a light pole and flipped the school bus over on to its side with the terrified children trapped inside.
Three adults and six children were hurt, officials said. They were transported to Woodhull Medical Center and Kings County Hospital. None was seriously injured.
