A crash in New Jersey last week is eerily similar to that of a New York City bus accident last winter which ended with the bus on the sidewalk and rescuers pulling innocent victims of the pavement. A loaded charter bus smashed into a traffic signal near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel. 14 people suffered from what rescuers classified as "minor injuries" after the sudden stop. Several eye witnesses stated the crash was "unavoidable" because a reckless driver swerved into the bus's travel lane an instant before the machine entered the Jersey City intersection.
