SECAUCUS, NJ – Two New Jersey Transit buses crashed on Monday morning injuring and hospitalizing a dozen people, according to Daily Voice.
The buses were driving toward the Lincoln Tunnel when one rear-ended the other, sending the first into a guardrail. The accident was on the ramp from the New Jersey Turnpike to Route 495 at about 7:15 a.m.
In order to get the victims of the crash out, Port Authority Tunnel and Bridge responders were forced to cut the doors off the bus that had left the roadway. Both drivers and ten passengers were injured. Four victims had neck and back pain, and were put in collars and on backboards.
Aside from those four, the other injuries were reported as minor.
Both buses were headed for the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan at the time of the collision.
