LINCOLN TUNNEL, N.J. — New video from last month's bus crash in the Lincoln Tunnel shows the terrifying moment two New Jersey Transit buses collided.
More than 40 people were injured Sept. 26 during the morning rush hour commute when one bus rear-ended the other, shutting town the tunnel's center tube for hours and causing extensive delays.
The video comes from bus cameras, showing two angles of the moment of impact — a front view of one bus hitting the other and reverse shot of passengers inside the bus bracing for impact as they see their bus about the hit the one in front of them.
Of the 91 passengers onboard the Port Authority Bus Terminal-bound buses, 46 were treated either at the scene or transported to area hospitals, officials said. The worst injuries included a broken jaw, a broken wrist and a seizure.
Through an investigation, officials from the Port Authority of New York and New Kersey determined one bus driver cut the other off, and the driver of the second bus did not have enough time to stop. Police issued three citations to the NJ Transit driver for improper lane change, careless driving and unsafe lane change.
