Video: Passengers scream as NJ Transit buses collide in Lincoln Tunnel
Dashcam video from an NJ Transit bus shows the moment it rear-ended another bus inside the Lincoln Tunnel.
The crash on Sept. 26 hospitalized 30 people and snarled traffic between New Jersey and Manhattan. The video obtained by PIX11 shows footage from a cabin-facing and forward-facing cameras.
Passengers in the rear bus anticipate the crash, screaming before the impact. The crash was powerful enough that passengers were tossed from their seats.
The bus driver remains calm and only visibly reacts after the impact. The forward-facing camera shows the front bus crossing over to the left lane, where the rear bus was traveling.
The driver of the front bus was charged with improper lane change, careless driving and unsafe lane change. News 12 New Jersey reported Tuesday that both drivers were pulled from duty while NJ Transit continues its investigation.
