(Newser) – An accident involving two double-decker tour buses injured 13 people in Times Square this afternoon. Three people were seriously hurt, though none of the injuries were life-threatening. The accident occurred around 47th Street and Seventh Avenue, an area of Times Square generally teeming with tourists near the TKTS discount Broadway tickets booth and the Hershey's Chocolate World store. One of the buses jumped a curb and crashed into a light pole, causing it to topple, and most of those injured were believed to be pedestrians. The cause of the accident was under investigation.
