Commuter bus crashes on I-95, dozens hurt


Police in Maryland say a auto that tried to pass a school bus full of eighth-graders from Pennsylvania that was headed to Washington, D.C., on a field trip clipped the bus, causing it to overturn.

A bus carrying Philadelphia schoolchildren was hit by a vehicle and overturned on an interstate highway in Maryland on Monday, injuring 30 people and backing up traffic for miles, authorities said.

Around 9:30 a.m. a Honda tried to pass the bus. Four adults - three chaperones and a driver - were also hurt. A bus filled with Philadelphia police personnel was in a caravan and stopped to offer assistance when the crash occurred. The adult patient was taken to Shock Trauma. That child was taken to the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware.

Twenty-five kids and three adults were taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center, Harford Memorial and Christiana Care in DE for treatment.

A priority 3 patient is one with relatively minor injuries such as cuts, scrapes, bruises and/or possible broken bones. Two children were taken from a Maryland hospital to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.




"She thought she was dreaming because prior to that she was napping", said parent John Clark. School district officials said some of the students had been released from the hospital. "The bus then traveled off the righthand side of Interstate 95, struck an embankment, traveled down that embankment, struck a tree, snapping that tree in half, and then turning over on to its left side".

At least 25 people were injured following an accident involving an overturned charter bus on southbound I-95 in Harford County.

The southbound side is expected to reopen Monday afternoon, the state police said.

The bus belonged to Pennsylvania-based charter company Werner Coach, according to the newspaper.
