  • A blue bus hangs over an overpass

A bus in New York City which careened off a road in the Bronx neighborhood of New York is left dangling from an overpass. Nine people were injured, including the bus driver, though MTA Bus Company chief Craig Cipriano tells CBS New York the driver was "very helpful [and] very heroic" in helping passengers get off the bus after the crash.

A number of passengers and a driver are hurt after an MTA bus shot right off the road through the barrier, and was left hanging off an overpass late Thursday night in Morris Heights.

As of 11 a.m. on Friday, January 15th, the bus was still hanging off of the overpass, Newsday reported.

The passengers and the driver were all injured, a Fire Department spokesman said. Several of them were taken to hospitals, and one person was listed in critical condition. The injured driver was able to help his passengers to safety after the freaky wreck, with authorities noting the bus passed a Wednesday inspection with no issues.

The bus was on University Avenue just east of the Major Deegan Expressway in Highbridge when its front half veered to the edge of the overpass and went over the side.

The driver passed a breath test at the scene of the crash but then refused to submit to a later drug and alcohol test at the hospital, said Patrick Warren, the MTA's chief safety and security officer.

Officials believe the cables connecting the two sections prevented the front of the bus from smashing into the expressway more forcefully, which might have caused more serious injuries.

"The MTA's goal is to have the safest transportation system in the nation, and when an incident like this occurs we take it very seriously", Warren said in a statement. We are certain this was a terrifying incident for those customers on the bus.
