A bus driver was thrown through a windshield and two dozen people were hurt Thursday when a bus on its way to Atlantic City crashed on a bridge.
The bus was traveling from Chinatown in Manhattan to bring gamblers to the Atlantic City casinos. It came to a line of vehicles that had stopped on Route 40 in Atlantic City, and the unidentified bus driver slammed on the brakes to avoid hitting the cars ahead.
The bus then struck a center divider, hit a car and struck a concrete retaining wall on the bridge, which is when the driver was thrown through the windshield. The bus then actually rolled over the driver and continued moving, skidding about 100 feet until it stopped.
The bus driver was in critical condition in the trauma unit at Atlantic City Medical Center.
The hurt bus passengers suffered only minor injuries and were treated at local hospitals following the accident, which took place around 11:30 a.m. Thursday.
The 26 passengers who went through the crash uninjured went on to the Tropicana Casino and Resort.
The bus that was involved in the crash is owned by Sun Lee Blue in Brooklyn.
