The agency says that the bus hit several cars along Nassau Avenue. But the brief release didn't say what caused the bus to hit the cars, or specify if the cars were moving or parked, or provide an exact number of cars hit.

A report by WCBS-TV says the bus hit a dozen parked cars. Footage showed a line of cars with fenders and doors dented and some windows smashed.
