Special Needs Bus Accident Sends 12 to Hospital

A car and special needs school bus carrying adults got in a major accident yesterday afternoon sending 12 people to be hospitalized.

The crash took place at the intersection of Eastern Parkway and Washington Avenue just before 12:37 p.m. One person had moderate injuries and 11 suffered minor injuries.

All patients were sent to either Kings County hospitals or Methodist hospitals. No additional details could be provided about the injuries or locations.

According to the NYC Department of Transportation, Washington Avenue is one of the top streets in the city to have reported dangerous accidents. At least 130 people have been injured either in car or bike accidents on the street between the years 2005 and 2009.

An SUV crashed into a building along the same corner this bus did in March on Eastern Parkway and Washington Avenue. It was between three cars, including a police vehicle.

The NYC Department of Transportation is thinking of new ways to implement safety plans on the strip.
