    More than a dozen people are injured after a crash involving a school bus and MTA bus. It happened just blocks away from where the U.S. Open is happening. As News 4's Gus Rosendale found out, the school bus was found far away from the scene of the crash.

    More than a dozen people were injured, four seriously, after an MTA bus crashed Thursday in Queens, authorities said. 

    The accident happened around 3:30 p.m at the intersection of 108th Street and the Horace Harding Expressway in Corona.

    Police said a yellow school bus traveling southbound on 108th Street sideswept multiple cars, sending one car, a black SUV, careening into the Q23 bus.

    The school bus, which did not have any children on board, did not stop after the accident.

    Four people are in serious but stable condition, and were taken to Forest Hills Hospital.

    A dozen other passengers suffered minor injuries, and were treated at the scene.

    Traffic is backed up around the scene, which is not far from the U.S Open. Delays have also been reported on the Q23, Q58, Q88, QM10 and QM11 buses.

    Police are still investigating the cause of the accident.
