1 killed, dozens injured in Pennsylvania school bus crash

More than two dozen students were injured and at least one person was killed when a packed school bus collided with a semi-trailer truck in southern Pennsylvania on Wednesday, officials said.

At least one person was killed in the crash, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Scott Kovach said.

Medical helicopters were transporting six students to hospitals, said Geraldine Budzina, a dispatcher with Somerset County 911.

Two other school buses were taking 22 students with less serious injuries to a hospital, she said.

As many as 70 students may have been on the school bus, she said.

    The lead photo must be reversed. Cause it sure looks like the school bus was in the wrong lane and the truck that hit the bus was coming out of the right (correct ) lane! But who knows. Too bad there was loss of life.
