NEW YORK (AP) — One of the drivers involved in a double-decker tour bus crash that injured 14 people in Times Square has been arrested.

William Dalambert, of Irvington, New Jersey, was charged with driving while ability impaired. Police say tests will determine whether prescription or illicit drugs were involved.

They say Dalambert was driving a Gray Line tour bus when he struck another parked double-decker bus Tuesday.

It happened 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 it then crashed into the other bus. A traffic light toppled, its metal pole lying on a pedestrian strip.

It wasn't clear if Dalambert had a lawyer.
