A group of special needs adults in a packed school bus rolling through Brooklyn were hospitalized Friday after the vehicle collided with two other automobiles.

One of the motorists was taken into custody after he was found driving with a suspended license, officials said.

Some 25 special needs adults were on the bus when the crash on Ave. U and E. 61st St. in Old Mill Basin occurred about 9:20 a.m.

Witnesses told police that Trevor Eady, 26, who was behind the wheel of a Nissan Maxima, slammed into another car as he zipped through the intersection. That car struck the bus, officials said.

Eady lives in Mill Basin and was about nine blocks away from his home when the crash occurred.

He and four adults in the school bus were taken to area hospitals with minor injuries. None of the injuries appeared to be life threatening.

Medics at the scene evaluated more than 20 other passengers on the bus, but all were uninjured.

Cops charged Eady with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, officials said.
