EDISON - Calls to 911 from the scene of a tragic accident reflect the urgency of the moments just after a bus driver lost control and struck a light pole, causing it to fall on a baby in a stroller.
Witnesses described the bus striking several cars and knocking the pole onto 8-month-old Angelie Paredes as she was out for an afternoon walk with her mother in West New York Tuesday.
Some of the bystanders say they wondered why the emergency response took so long. A spokesman for the Hudson County Sheriff's Office told the Star Ledger an ambulance responded within nine minutes.
