At around 5:30 this morning, a man driving a stolen box truck crashed into a city bus at Seventh Avenue and 14th Street, killing William Pena, the bus driver, and injuring four others, including the driver of the truck. Police were pursuing the truck before the crash, and apprehended the driver at the scene. Pena was a 20-year veteran of the MTA. The location is still being treated as a crime scene, and the Department of Buildings is reportedly on scene to determine if any structural damage was done after the vehicles plowed into construction scaffolding.
