WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, Manhattan (WABC) --Two police officers and an alleged car thief were injured when a stolen minivan struck an MTA bus in Manhattan Wednesday afternoon.
Authorities say the vehicle was stolen in Washington Heights, and nearby officers recognized it from a radio description and followed it.
The van rear-ended an M104 bus around Broadway and La Salle Street in Morningside Heights.
Two officers suffered minor injuries when they cut their hands on some glass, and the driver suffered a leg injury.
Charges are pending.
One rider on the bus was taken to St. Luke's Hospital complaining of a minor leg injury. No other injuries were reported on the bus.
