Passengers From Ohio Bus Crash Still Hospitalized

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - At least six of more than 30 people injured when a bus drove off an interstate highway and overturned remain hospitalized in southwest Ohio.

The Greyhound bus struck a tree and a fence and flipped on its side before sliding to a stop in a cornfield, injuring at least 35 people early Saturday. At least nine were hospitalized overnight.

None of the injuries was considered life-threatening.

The State Highway Patrol said there was no new information to release on the investigation Sunday.

Patrol Sgt. James Russell said 64-year-old Dwayne Garrett, of Cincinnati, was driving the bus carrying 51 passengers to Detroit from Cincinnati. A recording at a phone number listed for Garrett said the number may be disconnected.

The crash happened on Interstate 75 about 25 miles north of Cincinnati.
