‘Disturbing’ video emerges days after a MTA bus crashed into a Brooklyn, New York, building.
VIDEOKINGS — Two days after a city bus crashed into a three-story brownstone in Brooklyn, injuring more than a dozen people, News 4 has obtained shocking surveillance video of the incident that the MTA describes as “disturbing on many levels.”
The MTA also said in its response to the footage Wednesday that it raised “questions about whether basic safety rules were followed. The incident remains under investigation and we will have more to say when that is complete.”
The video from a camera inside the bus showed the driver remove one bag from the floor of his seat, then get up and get back into the seat. He can bee seen releaseing what appears to be some sort of emergency brake, and the bus immediately lurches forwards, hitting the vehicle in front.
