NEW YORK (AP) — Fire officials say a dozen people were injured when a New York City transit bus crashed into a home in Queens.

It happened around 9:30 p.m. Saturday in the neighborhood of Jamaica.

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says the bus was traveling down Guy R. Brewer Boulevard when it collided with a car traveling the opposite direction.

The bus continued going and crashed into the front of a home at a nearby intersection.

The Fire Department of New York says 12 people were taken to various hospitals. A fire department spokesman says all of the injuries appear minor.

The accident remains under investigation.
