Maryland bus crash: At least 30 injured, mostly children

- A tour bus from Chester County was involved in an accident on I-95. Nine patients were taken to another of the university's hospitals in Havre de Grace.

The bus was carrying students from Charles Henry School in Philadelphia's Mount Airy neighborhood. The company issued a statement Monday evening, saying, "Werner Coach is cooperating fully with police, officials from the Maryland State Police and others to assist the passengers involved in the accident in Maryland".

Maryland State Police said 26 children, three adult chaperones and a driver were on board in the crash that occurred in the southbound lanes. One adult and one child were flown in a helicopter to receive medical treatment. Others on the bus were transported by ambulance to area hospitals.

The cause of the crash wasn't immediately clear; however, state police said they were questioning the driver of a vehicle that apparently was involved.

Schools Superintendent William Hite Jr. said at a news conference that one teacher was flown to a trauma center in Baltimore. A company spokesman said, "We're not ready to release that info yet".
