Bus service shuts down in New York City after two-vehicle crash

NEW YORK (AP) A bus service has shut down in the New York city borough of Queens after a two-car crash.

The bus service, called Knight Transportation, was scheduled to run from the Manhattan borough to Brooklyn and then on to Manhattan, according to a statement from the company.

The company says two people were taken to the hospital and one was pronounced dead at the scene.

The New York State Department of Transportation says the two vehicles were in the wrong lane at a red light in Queens about 1:45 a.m.

The agency says a traffic-calming system was in place and the bus was turning left.

Knight Transportation says in a statement that it is cooperating fully with the authorities and that all drivers are being trained on the new traffic signs.

The statement says the driver of the vehicle was uninjured and the driver and passengers were treated at the hospital for minor injuries.
