Conn. bus crashes with police cruiser

Posted: Updated:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WHDH) -- More than two-dozen people were hospitalized with minor injuries after a transit bus and police cruiser collided in Connecticut.

The entire crash was caught on camera by eight surveillance cameras mounted on the bus.

Video from the outside of the bus shows a UPS truck near the intersection, which could have possibly blocked the driver’s view.

The officer was reportedly responding to a call at a train station when the crash occurred, but from the video it’s unclear if the cruiser lights were on.

Inside the bus video shows the moment of impact, people and objects were thrown to the grounds.

Other angles show the front of the bus as it is pushed off the road and into a walkway, nearly hitting someone.
