25 injured in crash involving MTA bus in Brooklyn

Twenty five people were injured Wednesday afternoon in an accident involving an MTA bus in East Flatbush.

A bus driving along the B46 route crushed the front of a BMW sedan near the intersection of Utica Avenue and Clarendon Road at around 4 p.m.

NYPD said late Wednesday that four men in the BMW were listed in critical condition at Kings County Hospital.

A preliminary police investigation shows that the BMW was traveling north on Utica Avenue when it hit a Nissan Altima exiting a parking lot.

The first collision sent the BMW flying into traffic and into the front of the MTA bus, cops said.

NYPD added that the woman driving the Nissan Altima was in stable condition at Kings County Hospital. The male bus driver was taken to SUNY Downstate Medical Center also in stable condition.

Sixteen passengers in the MTA bus were treated for minor injuries, authorities said.

Police consider the investigation into the accident ongoing.
