Juvenile correction van crashes into NYC bus

Three people were taken to the hospital Monday after a van carrying juvenile offenders crashed into a New York City bus.

Witnesses say the MTA bus was stopped at a light on Bergen Street when the van came down the road, smashing into the bus. They say there were at least five passengers in the van shackled in handcuffs.

The three injured passengers were taken to Lincoln Hospital with broken noses and head injuries. The Department of Correction has not confirmed whether or not the van was speeding.
