North Brunswick baby critically hurt when car collides with school bus
NORTH BRUNSWICK — A 6-month-old infant is recovering from a head injury following a collision between an empty school bus and a car.
North Brunswick Police Captain Brian Hoiberg said a gold Subaru sedan pulled in front of the bus traveling north on Route 130 from Carolier Lane just before 3 p.m. on Tuesday, injuring the driver and the 3 occupants of the car.
The crash remains under investigation to determine which vehicle ran the traffic signal, but Hoiberg said "the only way a collision like that could happen is if someone enters the intersection improperly."
The boy was sitting in the back with his mother, according to Hoiberg. They were taken with the female driver to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for treatment of traumatic injuries.
Hoiberg said all three face a lengthy hospital stay. The baby was listed as being in serious but stable condition.
Hoiberg said police were investigating whether the baby was properly restrained in a rear car seat, and said he was unable to disclose the identity of anyone involved, except to say all were North Brunswick residents.
The driver of the bus was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
