Buses collide inside Lincoln Tunnel; 32 hurt, 7 seriously

NEW YORK — A pair of New Jersey Transit buses collided inside the Lincoln Tunnel, and authorities say 32 people have been hurt, included seven with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

Officials say a NJ Transit bus rear-ended another at about 9:50 a.m. Friday in the tunnel's center tube and then drove into New York City and pulled over. The accident snarled morning rush hour traffic.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey manages the tunnel. Officials said the tunnel was open, with delays.

The Lincoln Tunnel connects New York City with New Jersey and is a major transit artery.
