A New York police officer from Suffolk County collided with a mini-school bus while en-route to a call earlier this morning, leaving three injured
According to Newsday, the officer slammed into the vehicle at an intersection in in the town of Shirley, injuring the officer and two adults who were aboard the bus.
Police report that the sole student that was aboard the bus was uninjured, and all adult parties were rushed to nearby hospitals.
The front of the police cruiser was heavily damaged, likely resulting in a total loss. The damage to the bus appeared to have primarily suffered damage to the rear left-side, shredding the tire and leaving debris all over the intersection.
The bus-related incident comes eerily close to the anniversary of a fatal bus crash that took place last year, when a car slammed into a bus in Suffolk County, killing two and injuring one.
