The crash happened at Northern Boulevard and Prince Street at around 9:50 p.m. Friday.

It involved a Q12 bus traveling westbound on Northern Boulevard and a van going eastbound.

The Q12 bus was out of service at the time. Only the driver was on board.

Of the 10 injured, four are said to be in critical condition, with five others in serious condition and one with minor injuries.

All were taken to New York Hospital Queens.

Police said there was no company name on the van.

They are still investigating and have made no arrests so far.
