Several teens injured in Long Island bus crash

More than 40 people were injured Sunday night when a bus struck a highway overpass on Long Island in NY, police said.

On Sunday evening, April 8, a bus with high school students crashed into a viaduct on long island, crushing the upper part.

The investigation also revealed Gaston was utilizing a non-commercial vehicle Global Positioning System device, with a planned route via the Belt and Southern State Parkway, according to police.

During a press conference, Candelaria said the accident was treated as a "mass-casualty incident". "I give credit the Nassau County police ambulance bureau's emergency services unit and the Lakeview Volunteer Fire Department".

One person sustained very serious injuries, which included broken bones and soft tissue injuries, officials said.

Over 40 people were injured, six seriously, after a serious bus accident on the Southern State Parkway.

There were 38 students, five chaperones, and the driver on the bus. "They set up a mass casualty treatment triage and probably saved lives", he said.

The Westbound lanes of the roadway are open, but the eastbound lanes between exits 17 and 19 are now closed. Passengers were seen covered in blankets as they waited outside.

The bus was from Journey Bus Lines, operated out of New Jersey. The driver is reportedly under review.

The investigation into the wreck is ongoing.

The accident occurred on Eagle Avenue in Lakeview, near the Airport. It is struck from beneath by tall vehicles an average of three times per year, according to the news site.

The system, already in place on the Northern State Parkway, also alerts State Police if a vehicle that is too high trips the system.

Trucks and buses are not allowed on the Southern State Parkway due to the low overpasses.

The passengers were taken to area hospitals within 30 minutes of the 9:12 p.m. call, McNeill said.

It wasn't just a bump. "If you look at the bus from the side, it's got substantial damage".
