MANHATTAN (PIX11) -- A minibus flew some three stories onto an embankment near the George Washington Bridge Tuesday, sending at least two people to the hospital, officials said.
It happened shortly before 9 a.m. on the Henry Hudson Parkway crossover ramp just north of the George Washington Bridge, according to EMS.
The Access-a-Ride bus, which caters to disabled New Yorkers unable to use traditional public transit, was traveling north on Henry Hudson Parkway when the driver tried to switch over to the southbound lanes using a traffic circle, according to an initial investigation and officials on the scene.
In that traffic circle, the driver apparently lost control and skidded off the roadway, which was lined in snow and possibly patches of ice. She drove through what appears to be a wall on the edge of the roadway and fell down about 35 feet to land on an embankment.
At least two people, possibly including the driver, were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, EMS said. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
