A bus carrying high school students crashed and rolled over on a highway in New York on Friday, killing two people and injuring over 40 others. The bus was carrying students from a high school in New Jersey to a field trip in New York City when it crashed on Interstate 87 in the town of Ramapo.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but authorities say that the bus was traveling at a high rate of speed and may have lost control. The bus driver and one of the students were pronounced dead at the scene. Over 40 other students were injured, some of them critically.
The injured students were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment. Some of the students have been released from the hospital, while others remain hospitalized in serious condition.
The school district has released a statement expressing its condolences to the families of the victims and saying that it is working to provide support to the injured students and their families. The district has also canceled all field trips for the remainder of the week.
