Bus rams into Prospect Lefferts Gardens building, no injuries reported

A school bus rammed into a building in Prospect Lefferts Gardens early Friday morning.

Officials say a 49-year-old was driving the bus heading west on Clarkson Avenue.

At around 4 a.m. the bus collided with a sedan that was heading north on Rodgers Avenue. Authorities say both drivers claimed they had the right of way.

The school bus jumped the curb and hit the front of a building on Clarkson Avenue, officials said.

Thankfully, no students were on the bus and no injuries were reported.

Both the bus driver and the sedan driver refused medical attention.

Officials say the people from four apartments from the building on Clarkson Avenue were evacuated.

The bus will not be removed from the building until it is determined whether the building is structurally stable, authorities said.
