UPDATE: Federal Officials to Inspect Bus After I-75 Crash
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Federal investigators will join state and local authorities probing a weekend bus crash that injured at least 35 people in southwest Ohio.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that U.S. Department of Transportation officials plan to inspect the Greyhound bus. It struck a tree and fence and overturned on its side before stopping in a cornfield just off Interstate 75 near Monroe early Saturday morning.
The Department of Transportation didn't respond immediately Monday to a message seeking comment.
Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton says two of four people taken there by CareFlight were admitted, one with a broken leg. At least six remained in hospitals Sunday evening.
The bus was carrying 51 passengers from Cincinnati to Detroit.
The State Highway Patrol and Butler County sheriff's office are investigating, as is Greyhound.
SEPTEMBER 14: Greyhound Bus Overturns on I-75; More than 30 Injured
LIBERTY TOWNSHIP -- Butler County Sheriff's deputies say 34 people were injured when a Greyhound bus overturned on northbound I-75 around 4 a.m.
Eighty emergency responders from three counties responded to the accident.
Passenger Chris Link of Flint, Mich., relives the horror.
"We were sitting on the bus, I was on my phone, I was sending a text to my wife, the next thing I know I hear two ladies scream, 'Wake up, wake up'. I look up and the bus driver looked like he was slumped over," Link said.
There were 52 people on board when the bus overturned. Officials say none of the injuries were life-threatening. OSP officials say it was a challenge getting everyone out safely. Most of the 52 on board were able to get out themselves; three were removed by firefighters, including the driver.
"They used some of the hydraulic rescue tools and removed some of the metal on the front of the bus to be able to get them out; there was another passenger in front of the bus that was entrapped, they were able to bend metal and remove metal by hand to get that person out," said an investigator.
Thirteen people were taken to Atrium Medical Center, 11 of them have been released. Here in Dayton, four people were taken to Miami Valley Hospital. Two have been released, the other two are listed in fair condition, one has a broken leg.
Investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the bus to overturn. Witnesses say the bus driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel. In the next weeks, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and local departments will be reviewing their investigation.
"Taking as many measurements and capturing all the evidence that they see at the scene so they can reconstruct this crash later down the road if there's some charges that come out of this," said OSHP Lt. Edward Mejia.
Another Greyhound bus transported the uninjured passengers to the Cincinnati station.
All southbound lanes of I-75 are open. The far right lane on northbound I-75 will remain closed, but two other lanes are open.
The state route 129 entrance ramp to I-75 North is closed for investigation of an unrelated crash. Troopers say 29-year old Eric Kirby of Middletown lost control and traveled off the the road. Kirby died at the scene. This accident happened around 3:30 Saturday morning, about 30 minutes before the Greyhound accident.
