NYC: Bus dangles off NYC overpass after crash injures 8

An MTA bus driver lost control of the vehicle and careened off a Bronx overpass in a crash that left at least eight people injured Thursday night, authorities said.

The harrowing incident took place around 11:10 p.m. as the driver of the Bx35 bus was trying to turn left off University Avenue onto a ramp to the Washington Bridge, according to MTA sources.

But the male driver veered off track, causing the bus to crash off the elevated road.

The front section of the bus landed flat on its windshield on the Cross Bronx Expressway, while the rear portion remained grounded on University Avenue.
