View Comments ()



    A person driving a vehicle threw a blunt object at an MTA bus driver in a road rage incident in East Harlem Wednesday evening, police say.

    An M101 bus was traveling southbound on Lexington Avenue near 116th Street when a vehicle cut off the bus, according to authorities. There was a short exchange, and the driver behind the wheel of the car rolled down the window and threw "an unknown blunt object" at the bus driver, breaking a window on the bus, police say.

    The driver apparently was frustrated he could not get around the bus, police said. 

    Authorities initially said the person in the car shot at the bus driver, but later said the person had thrown an object. He has been taken into custody. 

    There were several passengers on the bus at the time, but there were no injuries, police said.

    The bus driver was taken to the hospital for observation. 

    Police are investigating.
