A city bus was wedged under a tree at the bus stop at 92nd Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway on Thursday evening, stalling traffic.

Traffic heading toward the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge was stalled on Thursday evening, June 7, because of an MTA bus was wedged under a large tree, causing a major backup of traffic in all four directions.

The accident, at the B70 bus stop on the corner of 92nd Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway, occurred just before 4 p.m, said officials. A Hook and Ladder truck from FDNY Company 168 and several road control vehicles were seen sectioning off the area as six or seven firefighters attempted to dislodge the bus with pick axes.

“The main concern is the tree falling when we eventually move the bus,” said one firefighter who was on site waiting for personnel from the city’s Parks Department to arrive and assess the situation.

The B70 bus was temporarily rerouted to 86th Street as a result of the impact.
