NEW YORK (BNO NEWS) -- A serious bus accident in the New York City borough of the Bronx killed at least thirteen people on early Saturday morning, emergency officials said.

A spokesman for the New York City Fire Department said the accident happened just after 5.30 a.m. local time on the New England Thruway near an interchange with the Henry Hudson Parkway. Around 30 people were on board the bus, which is owned by the Brooklyn-based World Wide Tours.

At least 13 people were killed in the accident, the spokesman said, adding that six others were critically injured and taken to area hospitals. Eleven others sustained injuries. It was not immediately clear if children were among the casualties.

An employee who answered an emergency line for the tour bus operator refused to comment on the accident.
