Brooklyn, NY (July 2, 2021) – At 5 p.m. on the evening of Thursday, July 1, a bus accident took place on a roadway in Brooklyn that led to injuries.
According to FDNY officials, the accident involved a corrections bus and took place on Jay Street near the area of Johnson Street. Two correction officers and two detainees were inside the bus when the driver lost control and crashed into a scaffolding close to the Brooklyn courthouse. Police are not sure what caused the correction offer driving the bus to lose control of the vehicle.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were called to the scene to help those with injuries. Both of the correction officers were taken to the hospital for treatment of unknown injuries. The detainees both refused medical attention and are expected to be okay.
Due to the severity of the crash, the roadway was blocked in the area. This led to extensive delays for those traveling through.
The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.

Buses are some of the largest vehicles on our roads, which means that they are capable of causing extensive harm. On top of this, more buses operate in New York than in many other states throughout the U.S. This means that more bus collisions are likely to take place throughout the state every single year. Buses are common carriers, which means that drivers must take passengers from one destination to another without causing them immense harm. These accidents lead to serious injuries every year, which is why injured victims should seek the help of an attorney in their time of need.
