While on the Onondaga Lake Parkway, the 13-foot bus slammed into the 10-foot, 9-inch high CSX railroad bridge and flipped. Passenger Reena Raitold the Daily News, "The next thing I knew there was a lady on top of me and her blood was just dripping on top of me profusely. I yelled, 'Help, help!'"
Three men and an 18-year-old woman were killed in the crash, and a New York City woman is among the injured. Most of the seriously injured were sitting on the bus' upper deck. Rai said she usually likes sitting in front in upper deck, but chose to sit in the back of the top level this trip. "This was the only time I said, ‘Let’s try the back seat for a change.' I was very, very lucky.”
