Brooklyn, NY (June 9, 2021) – At 7:50 a.m. on Wednesday morning, June 9, a bus accident with injuries occurred at an intersection in Brooklyn.

According to officials, the accident happened at the intersection of Powell Street and Belmont Avenue. A school bus allegedly came to a stop at a location to pick up children when a vehicle attempted to squeeze between the bus and two passenger vehicles. The vehicle struck the bus in doing so. The driver then fled the scene.

Paramedics and numerous other responders were dispatched to the scene. There were approximately 15 children on the bus at the time of the accident, though only several of these parties were injured.

The roadway was blocked as police cleared the scene.

No further details have been released but the investigation continues.
