Five people were injured as the result of a MVA involving a bus and four other vehicles along the I. 495 West underpass between the Bergenline Avenue and Central Avenue bridges in Union City, July 26th. The accident, that occurred shortly before 6:30 A.M., shut down the westbound lanes, creating an early morning nightmare for commuters, just outside of the Lincoln Tunnel. According to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and state transportation officials, one vehicle struck a second vehicle, which then hit a bus traveling East in the special rush hour Xclusive Bus Lane. The bus lane was also shut down, with New York City bound buses lined up with no detour available. None of the injuries were considered life-threatening. Several area ambulances were dispatched to the scene to assist Port Authority Tunnel & Bridge agents and the Port Authority police.
