A fire engine, a school bus, and two cars collided in Flatlands on Thursday.

Firefighters rushed to the scene at Schenectady Avenue and Avenue N at 3:22 pm, and rushed five people to nearby hospitals with minor injuries, according to a spokesman for New York’s Bravest.

The smoke eaters had to extricate one man who’d become trapped within his car, but the school bus was blissfully empty of children, according to witnesses at the scene.

A police spokeswoman could not provide immediate comment regarding the collision.

Check out the out of touch fossil bragging about never moving out of his parent's apartment and still using the word "hipster" in 2019. LOL, I bet he still wears his flip phone on his belt.

Does Ford think that all cars should be banned? How about we become like the former USSR or the way China used to be where the elites get to drive while everyone else rides bikes.

So My statement was right: Henry Ford has been dead for over 20 years, you knucklehead. Kelley sounds like an idiot libtard.

Nothing wrong with living with parents. Saves money that you would pay to the greedy slumlords of this city while keeping pressure down on high rents. We should be thankful to people who live with their parents for this reason.

Some people have social lives and go out on a Friday night and stay out late. Sorry you are stuck in your studio dump with nothing to do except get up bright and early to troll.

Something very wrong with stalking comments at 2 am drunk. Get help. I guess you're too ugly for anyone to take you home on a Friday night. Sad. So exactly how many cats and chins do you have?
