A Pennsylvania man was driving a bus full of high school students that hit a bridge overpass on Sunday on Long Island. The roof of the bus was scrapped off, injuring 42 out of 44 passengers, with many injuries described by the police as serious.
New York State Police say the crash happened shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday on the Southern State Parkway in Lakeview.

Multiple ambulances and firetrucks responded to the scene.
