At least five people suffered critical injuries after a double-decker tour bus lost control in traffic near Union Square on Friday afternoon, striking several vehicles and knocking over nearby construction scaffolding, witnesses said.
The red tour bus, operated by City Sightseeing, was traveling east on Post Street around 3 p.m. when it “lost control,” according to a man working with the the Union Square Business Improvement District, who declined to give his name.
The bus struck several cars and trucks in traffic before veering to the left, where it struck scaffolding on the construction site of the new Union Square Apple store.
Fire officials confirmed at least 19 victims suffered injuries in the crash, four of them critically.
