Police say the driver of the bus suffered a medical episode right before the crash in Williamsburg. 9 parked cars were smashed. A miracle that no children were on the bus at the time of crash.
This crash was similar to Wednesday night’s accident in Brownsville, where a firefighter suffered a seizure and lost control of Ladder 120.
Six were hospitalized but none were hurt seriously.
