(CNN) — A bus careened out of control in New York Tuesday night crashing into a home and killing a 6-year-old boy, police said.

The Nassau Inter-County Express bus was traveling on a Long Island roadway at about 9:30 p.m. when it swerved to try and avoid hitting a person. The bus driver hit the pedestrian, lost control of the bus and crashed into the front bedroom of the house, killing the boy, the Nassau County Police Department said.

The boy’s 7-year-old brother was also in the room and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The pedestrian that was hit was taken to the hospital also with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Eleven of the about 20 people on the bus were taken to local hospitals with minor injures.

Police deemed that there would not be criminal charges in a preliminary investigation, but officers would continue to investigate.
