BOSTON (AP) - A charter bus full of passengers struck a bridge in Boston on Saturday night, injuring more than 30 people, authorities said.
The bus carrying 42 people was coming from Harvard University and was heading back to Pennsylvania when it struck an overpass in the Allston neighborhood shortly before 8 p.m., according to the Boston Fire Department.
Massachusetts State Police said several people aboard the bus were injured, though it had no immediate details on the nature of the injuries.
State Police said the Calvary Coach Bus out of Philadelphia was too high for the roadway. A spokesman for the bus company said he had no immediate information on the crash.
Photos posted on the Fire Department's website showed firefighters extracting people from the bus.
