At least 11 people suffered minor injuries Wednesday when a casino bus collided with two vehicles on the Golden Gate Bridge, a chain-reaction crash that shut down two southbound lanes of the span for nearly an hour, officials said. The collision was reported about 12:42 p.m. in the southbound lanes of the bridge near its south anchorage, according to preliminary information from the California Highway Patrol. The wreck occurred when a car came to a stop at the toll plaza and was hit from behind by another car before the bus rear-ended both vehicles, said Officer Andrew Barclay, a CHP spokesman. Eleven people were eventually transported to a hospital with minor injuries, eight from the bus and three from one of the cars involved in the crash, Barclay said.

- Critics throw shade at Cuomo's plan to light NYC bridges

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Critics are throwing shade at Gov. Andrew Cuomo's pricey plan to install high-tech, color-changing lights on New York City's bridges, questioning whether the investment is the best use of public money.A government watchdog group this month called for a state probe into what it says are conflicting explanations for how much the lights cost and where that money will come from.De Blasio, who has frequently sparred with his fellow Democrat, urged Cuomo to reallocate the money for emergency repairs on the subway system, which has been plagued by mounting delays, derailments and other problems caused by decades of neglect.Despite initial reports that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority would foot the bill, the state now says the money will come from economic development funds and proceeds from the state's Power Authority, which often works on big energy efficiency projects.
