    NEW YORK (AP) — A pair of New Jersey Transit buses collided inside the Lincoln Tunnel, and authorities say 32 people have been hurt, included seven with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

    Officials say a NJ Transit bus rear-ended another at about 9:50 a.m. Friday in the tunnel’s center tube and then drove into New York City and pulled over. The accident snarled morning rush hour traffic.
