2 school buses collide on I-95
Police say 54 people suffered minor injuries when two school buses crashed on I-95 Friday.
State police Sgt. John Maasz says the wreck in the Port Chester area resulted in "mostly bumps and bruises." Twelve-year-old witness Christina Hernandez tells The Journal News that some children hurt their necks and backs.
The girls on the buses, who attend the Rosedale Center Camp in the Bronx, were returning home after a day at the beach in Connecticut.
Police say the driver of the first bus stopped short and rear ended a Ford Explorer, which led to the second bus crashing into it. Efforts by News 12 Westchester to reach the Academy Bus Co., which chartered the buses, were unsuccessful.
The accident happened at about 3 p.m. on the highway's southbound side, near Exit 2.
