Brooklyn, NY (May 1, 2021) – At 5:15 p.m. on the evening of Friday, April 30, a pedestrian accident occurred at an intersection in Brooklyn.

According to police, the accident happened at the intersection of Hinsdale Street and Linden Boulevard. A 44-year-old pedestrian female who was driving a school bus was on the sidewalk in the area when a vehicle jumped the curb and intentionally struck her.

Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were immediately dispatched to the scene. The bus driver received a fractured pelvis, broken ribs, and various other injuries as a result of the accident. She was hospitalized in critical condition.
