HONG KONG, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- More than 40 people were hurt Tuesday when three double-decker buses collided during rush hour in Hong Kong, authorities said.

One person was seriously injured and had to be removed through the upper rear window of a bus, the South China Morning Post reported.

Police said one double-decker bus hit the back of another bus loading passengers at a bus stop in the Wan Chai district of Hong Kong Island. The force of the crash sent the second bus into another double-decker bus at the stop.

Most of the passengers received only minor injuries, The Standard reported.

It was the second major bus crash in Hong Kong in a week.
