NEW YORK —

The driver of a double-decker tour bus has been arrested in connection with a crash with another bus that injured 14 people in Times Square.

The NYPD charged William Dalambert, of Irvington, New Jersey, with driving while ability impaired. They say he struck another parked double-decker bus on Tuesday.

Police say Dalambert was driving a Gray Line tour bus.

It happened at 47th Street near the TKTS discount Broadway ticket booth.

Officials say none of the injuries was believed to be life-threatening.

Witnesses said the Gray Line bus rolled into the area at a high speed.

A Fire department spokesman said the bus then crashed into the other bus. A yellow traffic light toppled, its metal pole lying on a pedestrian strip.

It wasn't clear if Dalambert had a lawyer.
