Dozens were injured when a bus hit an overpass in Boston, according to a Feb. 2 AP report via Yahoo News. Forty-two passengers were on the charter bus, and several were trapped after the accident. Three were seriously injured in the crash.
The Calvary Coach Bus was leaving Harvard University heading back to Pennsylvania. The bus hit the overpass in the Allston neighborhood around 7:30 p.m. Unfortunately, the bus was too high for Soldiers Field Road, which is obviously why it hit the overpass.
The good news is that the Boston Fire Department freed the last victim of the bus crash around 9 p.m. The passengers were high school students and their chaperones. All the 28 injured students and adults were taken to area hospitals.
So far police have not commented on if the bus driver will be charged for failing to yield to the sign that prohibited vehicles of a certain height from driving under the overpass. The bus company has not issued a statement either.
