Bus carrying 26 kids on DC field trip overturns on I-95


The cause of the crash had not been determined, but a auto was "apparently involved in some way", said the MSP on Twitter.

A bus carrying Philadelphia schoolchildren was hit by a auto and overturned on an interstate highway in Maryland on Monday, injuring 30 people and backing up traffic for miles, authorities said.

Multiple fire companies, Maryland state police and other first responders assisted at the scene, including a bus full of Philadelphia police recruits. School district officials would not yet say which school the students were from, but said they were on their way to a field trip in Washington, D.C. They were on a bus owned by Phoenixville, Pa. based Werner Coach.

Philadelphia Schools Superintendent William Hite said some of the bus passengers were released from the hospital by Monday afternoon. All the passengers were taken to area hospitals, including two who were flown for treatment by helicopter. No deaths have been reported in the accident, which saw the bus flip "at least once", according to AP.


The crash took place around 9:30 a.m., closing all lanes of I-95 in both directions, the Maryland Transportation Authority said. Along with the children, there were three chaperones and a driver on board. The bus ended up hitting an embankment and striking a tree before overturning onto its left side on the roadway.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Authorities say a bus has overturned on Interstate 95 in northeastern Maryland and several people are injured.

At least two other buses and other cars are stopped near the overturned long, white bus with no apparent markings.
