Police: Woman critically injured when car skids on ice, hits bus in Greenlawn

Suffolk County police said they are investigating a crash early Thursday in Greenlawn between a car and school bus that critically injured the car's driver.

Marie Pierre-Paul, 38, was driving a 2009 Altima east on Delamere Street at about 8:30 a.m. when she attempted to stop at a stop sign at Broadway. Her car slid on ice and entered the intersection where it was hit by a 2002 Chevrolet school bus that was traveling northbound on Broadway.

Pierre-Paul, of 135-30 233rd St., Rosedale, was transported to Huntington Hospital in critical condition.

Two boys on the bus, ages 11 and 14, and both were taken to Huntington Hospital as a precaution, police said.

A police spokesman Thursday said there was no indication that either student -- the only two on the bus -- was injured.

The bus driver, Crystal Quigley, 49, suffered minor injuries; a bus attendant, Peter Alvarez, 39, was taken to Huntington Hospital for treatment of a broken leg.

The bus, owned by Suffolk Transportation Service Inc. of Bay Shore, was on its way to the Developmental Disabilities Institute, 25 Little Plains Rd., Huntington, police said.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information on the accident is asked to call the Second Squad at 631-854-8252.
