TRENTON, N.J. — Two New Jersey Transit bus drivers whose vehicles collided in the Lincoln Tunnel last month have been taken off the road while the agency investigates the accident.
Forty-four people were hurt in the Sept. 26 crash, though none of the injuries was considered life-threatening.
One driver was ticketed for an unsafe lane change. That driver has been with the agency for nearly nine years. The other driver has been with NJ Transit for nearly three years.
The drivers’ names haven’t been released. The drivers will be paid while the investigation proceeds but cannot drive buses.
The Lincoln Tunnel runs under the Hudson River and connects Weehawken, New Jersey, with New York City.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says 42 million vehicles use the tunnel every year.
