Truck boom smashed bus windshield on highway

FISHKILL–A sign installation boom on a truck smashed the windshield on a Monsey Bus Company bus as it traveled on I-84 in Fishkill Monday morning. The accident occurred near the Route 52 exit eastbound on the superhighway.

State Police said the truck and bus drivers dispute which vehicle swayed across lanes, but the bus driver ran off the road after his windshield broke in the 10:15 a.m. accident.

The coach bus, based in Spring Valley, had some 45 college student passengers. One sustained a minor head injury, according to police.

One lane of I-84 was blocked for some two hours causing two to three mile backups to the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge.

Rombout Fire Department personnel assisted in traffic control at the scene.
