NJ Transit spokesman William Smith says it happened around 12:45 a.m. Thursday.

Smith says the bus was headed for Newark's Penn Station when it was struck by the cab on Market Street near Washington Street.

Smith says the impact carried both vehicles about 90 feet across a median and into the storefront.

A portion of the building came down on the bus and the taxi.

The bus driver and eight passengers, along with the cab driver, were taken to a local hospital.

The bus driver suffered a minor concussion. The others sustained minor injuries, reported the Associated Press.

There were no reports of pedestrians injured and the building appeared to be vacant at the time of the crash

The accident is under investigation.

    NASA is reviewing data from a rocket launch that tested a new sub-payload deployment method for suborbital rockets. NASA says a Black Brant IX suborbital rocket was launched at 5 a.m. Thursday from the agency's Wallops Island Flight Facility on Virginia's Eastern Shore. The new deployment method uses small rocket motors to eject sub-payloads from a rocket's main payload. Thursday's test included releasing vapor traces in space.

    The Boys and Girls Club of Newark seems like the last place you'd expect to find the daughter of hip hop royalty. But when it comes to inspiring young girls, Angela Simmons, daughter of Rev. Run of Run DMC, believes in the old adage "each one, teach one." While it may seem like she had a silver spoon in her mouth, she knows the importance of giving back.
