PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a New Jersey Transit bus with only the driver aboard crashed backward through the wall of a building in Paterson after sliding on an icy hill.

Officials say that the driver received only minor injuries.

NJ Transit spokesman John Durso says the accident occurred at about 7 a.m. Friday at the end of the route for the bus.

The damaged one-story building houses a carpet store, Barefoot Rug. Officials say no one was inside at the time.

NJ Transit buses are running with delays and light ridership as the region digs out from a storm that dumped up to 10 inches of snow in parts of the state.
