NEW YORK (AP) --Authorities are investigating what caused a New York City bus to plunge off a bridge in dramatic fashion. The crash happened after 11 p.m. Thursday.

Officials said the 55-year-old driver broke his jaw in the crash and refused a drug and alcohol test at the hospital.

Seven passengers suffered minor injuries.

The front half of the two-section bus was left hanging from the bridge it was navigating with its fall broken only by a ramp below.

The other half was vertical with its front end smashed. The name of the driver was not released.
