WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) – Police say an accident involving a bus in southwestern Pennsylvania sent almost two dozen people to hospitals, but no passengers were seriously injured.
State police in Washington County say a sport utility vehicle heading west on Interstate 70 veered into the lane occupied by the bus just before 4:30 a.m. Sunday. The bus was sideswiped by the SUV, went onto the median and hit a guardrail and a light post before rolling over onto the driver’s side.
Police say the driver of the bus was ejected through the windshield. The driver was flown to a hospital and listed in fair condition.
The passengers were treated for minor injuries at local hospitals. Police said the SUV driver was uninjured and will be cited for careless driving and other violations.
WPXI in Pittsburgh reported the bus was on the way from New York City to Columbus.
The westbound lanes of I-70 were closed for several hours.
