Maryland bus crash: At least 30 injured, mostly children

Thirty people were taken to the hospital when a bus carrying Pennsylvania school children overturned on Interstate 95 in northeastern Maryland, state police said. Officials said one child and one teacher were seriously injured. That includes one adult and one child. One child and one adult were flown to hospitals in Maryland and DE and others are being taken to hospitals by ambulance, police said.

There have been no reported deaths as of 3 p.m. Monday. Maryland State Police flew one victim to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

Three crash victims are being treated at DE hospitals, officials said. Patients have been taken to Upper Chesapeake and Harford Memorial hospitals. Nine patients were taken to another of the university's hospitals in Havre de Grace. Additional patients were taken to Christiana Hospital in Delaware. "We're glad to see that everyone is OK", Harford Memorial Hospital emergency physician Dr. Steven Fountain told WBAL. He said numerous patients suffered muscle strains and contusions.

The cause of the crash wasn't immediately clear; however, state police said they were questioning the driver of a vehicle that apparently was involved.

Maryland State Police said 26 children, three adult chaperones and a driver were on board in the crash that occurred in the southbound lanes.

The cause of the crash is still unknown. He said a group of Philadelphia police recruits was on a commercial bus behind the bus that crashed and stopped to help. School officials said the students were on a field trip to Washington D.C. and that all individuals had been accounted for. "I pray for the full and speedy recovery of those who were hurt", said Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney in a statement.

The Werner Coach charter bus was out of Phoenixville, Chester County. Calls to the company's president were not immediately returned.
