Nine people were hurt Monday afternoon when a Queens express MTA bus crashed into a pillar on FDR Drive in Manhattan, FDNY officials said.
The QM11, which operates between Rego Park and downtown Manhattan, hit a pillar near an overpass on East 34th Street at around 4:15 p.m., according to the FDNY.
Six of the nine injured passengers refused medical attention, emergency responders said.
The three others were transported to Bellevue Hospital with more serious injuries, the FDNY said. None of the injuries were life-threatening, an official added.
