Photo: TRAGEDY: Boy, 6, Killed When Bus Crashes Into Long Island Home
A young New York boy is dead after a bus crashed into his bedroom Tuesday night.
The bus, part of the Nassau Inter County Express, was traveling in Long Island’s Hempstead neighborhood when it swerved to avoid hitting a pedestrian.
David Granados and his 7-year-old brother had been sleeping in the family’s front bedroom when the bus came crashing in at around 9:30 p.m.
David was taken to a local hospital but sadly did not survive his injuries.
Eleven of the estimated 20 people aboard the bus were treated for non-serious injuries. David’s brother was also hurt, but his injuries were said to be non-life threatening.
The 35-year-old pedestrian the bus tried to avoid was injured as well, though the person survived. The person was not crossing at a crosswalk. Witnesses say the bus driver sounded his horn several times but was unable to stop fast enough to avoid a collision.
The 50-year-old bus driver, who was not identified, was admitted to the hospital but his condition has not been revealed.
