NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Eric Adams today released the following statement on a multi-vehicle crash involving a New York City Department of Education (DOE)-contracted school bus this morning, that had no children on board, on the Hutchinson River Parkway in the Bronx:

“This morning, a school bus carrying only bus drivers for the city’s summer programming overturned while exiting the Hutchinson River Parkway. The safety of every member of our community is our top priority and thankfully, at this time, no major injuries have been sustained on board. Additionally, no students were on the bus.
