PATERSON - Authorities say a New Jersey Transit bus with only the driver aboard struck a building in Paterson after sliding backward down an icy hill.

Officials say the driver received only minor injuries. The accident occurred at about 7 a.m. at the end of the route for the bus. The damaged building houses the Barefoot Rug Company on 4th Avenue. Officials say no one was inside at the time.

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