A Greyhound bus crash in Ohio left 34 people injured. On Sept. 14, the Greyhound bus overturned while driving along Interstate 75 in Butler County's Liberty Township. According to WDTN, the bus hit a tree and a fence before sliding through a cornfield and eventually coming to a stop.
Passengers on the bus recall screaming and falling on top of one another as the bus toppled. The veteran driver -- who has been with Greyhound for 15 years -- was seen slumped over the steering wheel. He was among the injured and was taken to the hospital.
The Greyhound bus crash caused quite a bit of a back up on the Interstate. As of 2 p.m. Saturday, only one lane of traffic remains closed as police work to recreate the accident and complete their investigation. As for the injured passengers, 16 people have been treated and released. Four people are in serious condition and were flown by helicopter to the hospital -- it is presumed that one of these four people was the bus driver.
"We rolled at least twice...everybody fell on each other. I'm just glad to be alive. I just want to see my wife and kids..and hold them. I was on my hands and knees letting people step on my back to get up and out," said passenger Chris Link.
The Greyhound bus crash is still being investigated. Many are wondering what happened and if the driver had some sort of medical mishap before losing control of the vehicle.
