WAYNE, N.J. — A tour bus from Canada carrying about 60 people bound for a New York City church event overturned on a highway exit ramp in northern New Jersey, slid down an embankment and landed on its side early Saturday, injuring about a dozen who were aboard.
Some windows burst during the crash and their frames pinned three people, but they were quickly freed and taken to hospitals with the other victims. None of the injuries were considered life-threatening, according to state police, and most of the victims were being treated for cuts, bruises and soreness. The driver told authorities he had a gash in his arm.
Passengers told the Star-Ledger of Newark that they were Seventh-day Adventists headed to an event in Brooklyn.
It was not immediately clear what caused the crash around 7:45 a.m. on Interstate 80 in Wayne. Those aboard included several children and an infant.MORE IN Wire NewsJERUSALEM ó Israel on Tuesday launched its largest offensive in the Gaza Strip in nearly two...
