PATERSON – A car broadsided an adult daycare bus Wednesday afternoon sending seven people to the hospital, police said.
The bus was crossing Union Avenue at the Elberon Avenue intersection at 1:50 p.m. when a Mercedes-Benz C55 hit its side. The sedan’s two passengers and driver, Hayrettin A. Kansay, 18, of Little Falls, were taken to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center for neck and back injuries, as were four of the six bus passengers. The injuries were not life-threatening.
The Mercedes had the right-of-way, according to police, and it was unclear if the bus driver obeyed the stop sign.
“We can’t prove he didn’t stop,” Lt. Alex Popov said.
No summonses have been issued.
