Dozens of people were injured when a car being chased by police collided with an MTA bus in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn Monday evening, authorities say.

When police pulled over a black Camaro and spotted a gun inside the car, the Camaro took off, colliding with the bus near Herkimer Street and Albany Avenue at about 4:45 p.m., according to law enforcement officials.

The FDNY says 43 people were hurt, including the driver and the passenger of the car, who had to be extricated. They were arrested by police. 

Forty-one passengers on the bus also reported injuries, most of them minor. Twelve people were reported to be in serious condition, and one was critical. 

They were taken to Kings County, Interfaith and other nearby hospitals.
