Bus accident injures 33

Thirty-three people were injured - two critically - in a bus accident Thursday morning near Gibbon, Nebraska, the American Bus Association reported.

The driver of the bus was among those critically injured.

Details of the accident were unclear, but it appeared that the bus either struck or was struck by an 18-wheeler, association spokesman Dan Ronan told CNN.

The incident happened on Interstate 80.

The Burlington Trailways bus was heading from Omaha, Nebraska, to Denver, Colorado.

    Isn't this an awful lot of bus crashes lately ? What's happening ? Are the qualifications for bus drivers getting that low ?
    Damn, I'm fully of questions today, aren't I ?

    That was really terrifying. I was on i80 then, and had to swerve to avoid it. I didnt actually see what happened, but it was bad afterword.
