Monsey School Bus Slams Into House, Dozens Injured

A school bus operated by a Monsey Yeshiva slammed into a house Thursday morning. At least 21 patients have been transported to nearby hospitals.


Monsey Hatzolah is at the scene of a serious bus-involved MVA on Southgate Drive in Spring Valley.

Witnesses report that the bus, operated by the Ribnitzer schools, slammed into a home and pinned a car underneath it. How the accident unfolded is not yet clear, but bystanders state that the bus struck two parked cars and dragged them with it over a hill and into a home.

At least 21 patients have been extricated from the wreck and transported to nearby hospitals, including at least 5 to trauma centers, with 2 in serious condition.

There is now a massive law enforcement presence at the scene, with an investigation underway. Rockland Chaveirim is at the scene as well, assisting with traffic and other urgent matters.
