Tour Bus Crash

A Greyhound Bus Crashed Through A Guard Rail. Multiple passengers were injured when a Greyhound bus traveling from New York City to Montreal crashed through a guard rail on the Northway late Monday and landed upside down at the bottom of an embankment, police said.

State police reported six unconfirmed deaths, but they have not yet been confirmed by a medical examiner, said Trooper Ryan Bentley of the Westport barracks.

The Plattsburgh Press Republican reported from the scene that several people were killed. Former Mayor Daniel Stewart and his partner, Jon Recor, were among the first people at the crash site. They provided a blanket to cover some of deceased passengers.

The bus was driving northbound on Interstate 87 at about 6:45 p.m. when it overturned just before exit 31 near Elizabethtown.

Other Passengers Trapped On The Bus

At least 20 passengers were lying on blankets and stretchers while receiving care from medical personnel, while others still remained trapped on the bus at 8:30 p.m.

The injured were taken to hospitals in Elizabethtown, Plattsburgh and Glens Falls. CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh was in disaster mode and called City Police Department for help with crowd control.

The highway remained closed late Monday between Exits 30 and 31 in both directions. The back and top of the bus was crushed and one of its back wheels was turned inward. Westport is 110 miles north of Albany.
