The school bus was heading east bound on Frederick Avenue. The bus struck a Ford Mustang, then a pillar at a near by cemetery before hitting the MTA bus in a near head head-on collision.

The school bus driver is among those declared deceased. The other five listed as deceased were passengers on the MTA bus.

Ten others were injured, including eight who were on the MTA bus, an adult passenger on the school bus and the driver of the Ford Mustang.
