Dozens Injured in Lincoln Tunnel Accident

Posted on Mar 17, 2011

An early morning crash in the Lincoln Tunnel resulted in serious injuries on Thursday morning February 24, 2011. The accident involved a motorcycle and 3 buses at approximately 7:25 a.m., during the height of the morning rush hour. The center tube of the Manhattan-bound tunnel was closed for hours as emergency officials helped the injured and police investigated the cause of the crash. Traffic delays continued throughout the morning.

Early reports from the accident scene indicated that the motorcyclist was taken to Bellevue Hospital in critical condition. He was allegedly pinned under one of the buses during the crash. Approximately 60 people aboard the bus also suffered injuries, which are believed to be non life threatening.

Approximately 13 people were taken to Roosevelt Hospital in New York with serious injuries.

Both New York and New Jersey officials responded to the accident. The New York Fire Department reports that the motorcyclist was riding between the two buses when the front bus stopped for traffic and the rear bus crashed into the motorcyclist and the front bus.

We extend our best wishes for a quick and complete recovery to the injured motorcyclist and to all of the bus passengers who were hurt in this Lincoln tunnel accident.
