A school bus carrying girls from the Beis Rivka Day Camp was involved a crash with a number of parked cars on East New York Avenue. Witnesses said the bus went the wrong way on Kingston Avenue shortly before the crash.
Campers in Beis Rivka Day Camp were thankfully uninjured after the bus they were traveling in crashed into a number of parked cars on East New York Avenue on Monday afternoon.
The campers were on their way to a trip when the bus driver, working for L and L Bus Transportation, crashed into a number of parked cars just off Kingston Avenue.
Witnesses said that the bus had been traveling the wrong way down the avenue just before the crash.
Surveillance video reviewed by CrownHeights.info showed the bus making a right turn from Lefferts Avenue onto Kingston shortly before making a left turn onto East New York and subsequently crashing into a number of parked cars.
Police and medical personal responded and checked out the passengers, none of whom appeared to have been injured, and were later switched to another bus to continue the trip.
School sources said that during the summer months the day camp regularly hires outside bus companies to take the campers on trips.
