NEW YORK (AP) — Officials in New York City say a collision between a city bus and a tour bus at a Queens intersection has left three people dead and others severely injured.

The New York Police Department says one person died at the scene of the 6:15 a.m. crash on Monday.

Two others died at hospitals. Officials say more than a dozen others have been injured.

The collision occurred at an intersection in the Flushing neighborhood.

One of the buses also hit a building. Firefighters have extinguished a blaze there.

A photo tweeted by the NYPD’s 109th Precinct shows the buses side-by-side facing opposite directions, with the city bus slightly tilted to one side.
