In a statement, the Yonkers Police Department said the officer, a 24-year veteran, was on duty driving an unmarked police vehicle.
The trooper was heading west on Tuckahoe Road yesterday when around 3:30 p.m. The driver of an eastbound BMW sedan apparently lost control, cut into oncoming traffic and collided with the police vehicle and a Westchester County Bee-Line bus.
Sergeant Gualdino, who was alone in the police vehicle, died at a local hospital. The driver of the sedan was hospitalized in critical condition. The bus driver suffered minor injuries, and several of its approximately 30 passengers were treated at the scene for minor injuries, police said.
The accident remained under investigation. “Our hearts are broken tonight and we ask that you keep the sergeant’s family in his thoughts and prayers,” Yonkers police said in the statement, quoted by Fox News.
Also yesterday in New York another bus suffered a freak accident. In that case, a school bus that crashed into a house in the town of New Hempstead, Rockland County, leaving seven children injured.
