Suburban NY police probe truck-bus crash; 1 dead
ALBERTSON, N.Y. (AP) — Police on Long Island say the driver of a pickup truck has been killed in a crash with a charter bus.
The accident in Albertson happened at about 9 a.m. Tuesday.
A police spokesman says rescue personnel were working to free the driver of the charter bus. There appeared to be only one passenger on the bus. That person’s condition was not immediately known.
The bus apparently veered into a tree following the collision.
Police say it appears the pickup truck may have crossed a double-yellow line and collided head-on with the bus.
The identity of the truck driver was not immediately released.
