Double-decker buses crash in New York's Times Square, injuring 14

A driver involved in a double-decker tour bus crash that injured 14 people in Times Square has been arrested on suspicion of driving while impaired.

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:
