4 Kids in Bucks County-Bound Bus Still Hospitalized in Boston
While many of the 42 passengers on a wrecked Bucks County-bound charter bus have made it home safely after a serious crash Saturday, four remain hospitalized in Boston. Matt Cruz, a sophomore at Neshaminy High School, is in critical condition, and may have suffered spinal damage, while three others sustained serious injuries.
The bus, whose West Philadelphia charter company was flagged for several citations in 2011, crashed Saturday night after smashing into a 10-foot overpass; numerous signs were posted warning of low clearance. 35 passengers were injured in total. The bus was ferrying kids to and from Cambridge, Massachusetts as part of a program for the Destined for a Dream Foundation, which serves at-risk youth. [Inquirer]
