LINDEN, New Jersey (WABC) -- Three people were seriously injured when metal debris hit the front windshield of a New Jersey Transit bus on Thursday afternoon.

It happened around 4 p.m. on the northbound New Jersey Turnpike in Linden.

A couple and another woman sitting in the front row suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Bus Route #139 from Lakewood to Port Authority had 59 passengers on-board at the time of the accident.

Another bus came by to pick up the customers to continue their trip to the Port Authority.

The metal apparently came off of a white box truck as it was changing lanes.
