The cause of the accident is not clear.

We assessed and treated a total of eight patients from this accident,” fire service deputy chief Paul Hopper said.

“The bus fell approximately 50ft (15m) on to the access road. The patients suffered injuries consistent with a fall from such a great height.”

New York City councillor Mark Levine tweeted that emergency services had closed off the entire area after the “horrible accident”.
