NEW YORK (AP) — One of the drivers in a double-decker tour bus crash in Times Square that injured 14 people -- three of them seriously -- has been arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired, police said Wednesday.

William Dalambert, 58, faces charges of driving under the influence of drugs while he was behind the wheel of a tour bus that collided with another double-decker bus Tuesday afternoon.

It happened around 47th Street and Seventh Avenue in Manhattan, an area usually teeming with tourists near the TKTS discount Broadway ticket booth. The crash shut down a stretch of Seventh Avenue.

At least 14 people were hurt. FDNY said none of the injuries in the crash is believed to be life-threatening.

City officials said bus passengers were among at least eight people treated at the scene.

Rose Cantillon was visiting the city from Ireland and was nearby when the buses collided. She said she was sitting on a bench when she "heard screaming" and ran.
