Two double-decker buses collided Tuesday afternoon in Times Square, injuring at least 14 people, officials said, and apparently toppling a light pole.
The collision in Manhattan involved "contact with some sort of light pole," a New York City Fire Department spokesman said. Three people had serious but not life-threatening injuries, and 11 people had minor injuries, and all were being treated at area hospitals, he said.
The department received the call at 3:22 p.m. Here are some reactions and photographs from Twitter:

Happened to be in Times Square after the bus crash just now. Saw a kid holding his chest in severe pain. 4 cameras trained on him. Ugh.— Lachlan Markay (@lachlan) August 5, 2014
