Around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, traffic built up at the intersection of Ridge Road and Route 304 in New City. After getting cut off by a small red car, a Clarkstown Central School District bus was hit by a black Mazda.
"A car that cut off the school bus left the scene and then the bus—trying to avoid the impact with that vehicle (the small red car)—was struck by that car up there," said a Clarkstown police officer pointing to the black Mazda on the flatbed.
The small red car "fled westbound on Ridge Road," said police. "The bus was empty other than the driver and the other car (black Mazda) had only a driver too." There were no major injuries.
He added that several witnesses saw the incident occur, but did not get the license plate or any other descriptions of the vehicle other than the fact that it was small and red.
