At least 35 people were injured in southwest Ohio on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013, when a Greyhound bus crash was caused by the driver veering off the the interstate, striking a tree and a fence, and flipping on its side. The Associated Press reported that the bus finally came to a stop in a cornfield.
There were no injuries that were considered to be life-threatening. A number of people had to be taken out of the Greyhound bus by firefighters and paramedics after the crash. Injuries ranged from minor to severe.
Passenger Christopher Lake, of Michigan, said that he wasn't sure what caused the bus crash, but he did see the drive slumped over. A woman began screaming, "Wake up! Wake up!" but he believes the driver may have had a medical problem.
Lake, who was not injured, said the driver seemed fine when he got on the bus to start the trip.
Around 3:50 a.m. on Saturday, the bus drove off the right side of northbound I-75, about 25 miles north of Cincinnati. The bus ended up rolling over twice before hitting the tree and stopping.
An investigation is still ongoing.
In total, 51 passengers and the driver were on board the Greyhound bus at the time of the crash.
