Unexpected Bus Stop On Ave. K



A home at the busy intersection of Avenue K and East 45th Street had an unwelcomed visitor Wednesday at about 8:45 a.m. According to witnesses at the scene, a white Bella Bus Corporation mini transporter swerved in an attempt to avoid colliding with a dark blue minivan and wound up crashing into the front steps of the corner house. The driver of the bus was seen being tended to by paramedics while he was still behind the wheel. The minivan driver was seated on the curb while being treated. His vehicle's windshield was smashed on the driver's side and there was extensive damage to the front of the minivan. Both drivers were taken by FDNY EMT responders to area hospitals. Photos by D.
