Photos showed the front end of the bus dangling off the overpass, perpendicular to the road below, while the back portion of the bus remained above, in a horizontal position.

The FDNY says nine people are injured after a bus crashed through barriers on University Ave and the Cross Bronx Expressway Friday morning.

Emergency crews confirmed via Twitter that one person was critically injured, two had serious but not life-threatening injuries and six had minor injuries. They were all taken to the hospital.

The cause of the accident is not clear.

"We assessed and treated a total of eight patients from this accident", fire service deputy chief Paul Hopper said.

Streets near the accident site are now closed and officials say traffic is delayed in the area.

Firefighters will secure the fuel and any other hazardous materials before pulling the bus fully onto the road, Acting Battalion Chief Steven Moore said in the post.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said it was conducting "a full investigation and will implement lessons learned in order to prevent it from happening again". "Our hearts go out to them with hope that they can recover quickly", MTA's Chief Safety and Security Officer Patrick Warren said.
