RIVERSIDE, N.Y. (WPIX)—A Riverside bus crash left one dead and nine injured this morning, after a Suffolk County Transit bus collided with a car.
Police believe the fatality was in the car, not the bus, and the full extent of the injuries is unknown.
The fatal crash occurred at 7:40 a.m. on northbound Route 51, near Suffolk Community College, as many were starting their commute to work and school.
Southampton police said that two people were transported to Southampton Hospital, five to Peconic Bay Medical Center and two to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center -- the last two with neck and back injuries.
The road was closed between Pine and Speonk-River Road during the morning as the investigation continued.
