A school bus crashed into an MTA bus and four other vehicles  in Queens Thursday afternoon, causing numerous injuries, said the NYPD.

Around 2:30 p.m., a school bus, carrying no passengers, was travelling southbound on 108th Street in Corona and struck a Q23 bus and four cars when the school bus driver attempted to make a left turn onto Horace Harding Expressway, according to police.

Fourteen people received minor injuries in the accident and were transported to local hospitals, said police.

The accident also caused delays on the Q23 as well as four other Queens bus lines that afternoon.

According to authorities, the school bus driver, Jean Louis, 47, of Corona, allegedly left the scene of the accident and was later taken into custody where he was charged for fleeing.
