Last Saturday around 6 a.m., a Greyhound bus headed to St. Louis via Pittsburgh flipped over onto its side on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near the Lebanon-Lancaster exit, after stopping in Philadelphia.
Fourteen of the 18 people on board were injured, including one woman who got trapped and had to be freed by rescue crews. All injured passengers were treated at local hospitals.
Trooper Glenn Fields said the bus was in the left lane and struck a concrete barrier then veered right and went up the embankment before tipping on its side.
State police had said Saturday the driver, identified as a 34-year-old Philadelphia man who had been on the job less than a year, lost control of the bus. –Philadelphia Inquirer
FAR too many bus crashes happen on our highways. We need to make certain that every single driver on the road is qualified, well-rested, and of course, drug and alcohol free. If you are considering a bus trip, you can research the safety record of any bus company here.
