Buses crash on icy ave., 12 are hurt

A yeshiva bus rear-ended a city bus and injured a dozen passengers Tuesday after apparently losing control on an icy road in Brooklyn, officials said.


The school bus from the Yeshiva Beth Hillel skidded into an idle B11 at 49th St. in Borough Park, fire and transit officials said. The road appeared to be slick with ice, witnesses said.


David Levog, 38, an official at the school, said there were 15 students aboard the school bus. They were not hurt, he said. "He was going extremely slow," Levog said of the driver. "It was just extremely icy."


The city bus was at a red light at 14th Ave. shortly before 7 a.m. when the school bus hit it, NYC Transit officials said,


"The whole road is a sheet of ice," said Donald Santos, 52, of Sunset Park. "It could have been a lot worse."


Twelve passengers on the city bus sustained minor injuries, transit officials said, and 10 of them were taken to Maimonides Medical Center. None of the injuries were life-threatening.
