NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) - One person was seriously injured when a tire smashed through the windshield of a bus in northern New Jersey.

It happened during the Monday morning commute in Upper Saddle River.

The tire came off a car in the northbound lanes and flew into the southbound lanes before hitting the Pine Hill Trailways bus. It created a large hole in the window directly in front of the bus driver.

The commuter bus was headed to New York City.  One person was reportedly flown to a hospital by a helicopter and some other passengers were taken to a hospital. The extent of their injuries is not known.

The bus was moved to the side of the road near the tire.  Police were also on the opposite side of Route 17 with the vehicle that lost the tire.

    A Point Pleasant resident frustrated with what he sees as slow action on the part of the Borough Council on making the town safer for pedestrians and bicyclists has started a petition urging the council to act. The petition, posted on change.org, said that while the council passed a Complete Streets ordinance last year and commissioned a report, little of substance has been done, Hagemeyer says.

    Workers continue making repairs after a New Jersey Transit train derailed on the Montclair-Boonton line. NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder says passengers on that line are facing delays of up to 20 minutes in both directions on Wednesday because the railroad can only use one track. The train derailed between the Bay Street and Walnut Street stations in Montclair on Tuesday afternoon. No one was injury and passengers were safely transferred from the train.
