At least 13 people were killed Saturday in a tour bus accident in the Bronx, a New York Fire Department spokesman said.
The accident occurred just after 5:35 a.m. when the tour bus was traveling on the southbound lanes of the New England Thruway near the Hutchinson River Parkway.
There also were injuries among the 32 passengers on board, with six of them critical, the fire department said. The people were rushed to the St. Barnabas and Jacobi hospitals.
The Bronx is one of New York City's five boroughs.
