William Dalambert, of Irvington, New Jersey, was charged with driving while ability impaired. Police say tests will determine whether prescription or illicit drugs were involved.

They say Dalambert was driving a Gray Line tour bus when he struck another parked double-decker bus Tuesday.

It happened near the TKTS discount Broadway ticket booth.

Officials say none of the injuries was believed to be life-threatening.

Witnesses said the Gray Line bus rolled into the area at a high speed.

A Fire department spokesman said it then crashed into the other bus. A traffic light toppled, its metal pole lying on a pedestrian strip.

It wasn’t clear if Dalambert had a lawyer.
