He says the bus was coming off Route 38 and was on a ramp for Kings Highway shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday when it was apparently hit from behind. He says the bus was pushed over a railing and came to rest against a tree.

He says the other vehicle was heavily damaged. He did not have information about its occupant or occupants.

The paratransit buses serve passengers with disabilities.
