12 Hurt in Maspeth Bus Crash

Ten students riding in a special education bus were taken to Elmhurst Hospital for observation Wednesday morning after a crash in Maspeth.

Department of Education (DOE) officials said the bus was making a right turn when a car cut in front and hit the bus.

The crash happened just before 7:30 a.m. on a service road of the Queens Midtown Expressway near 68th Street.

An FDNY spokesman said
12 people—including the 10 students—were injured in the crash.

Parents were notified, a DOE spokeswoman said.
