1 min read

A bus full of tourists heading to Niagara Falls rolled over on the New York State Thruway Saturday, sending all 57 people on board to hospitals, officials said.

The bus from Dutchess County veered off I-90 some 25 miles west of Syracuse at 12:40 p.m. and landed on its side in the grass, State Police said.

Injuries ranged from minor to serious, according to cops. The passengers included children.

It wasn’t immediately clear what company operated the bus or what caused the crash.

Police photos of the scene showed papers and other items strewn around the white bus lying on its side off the shoulder of the highway.

Traffic was backed up for miles as one westbound lane of the Thruway was closed for hours following the accident.
