Candelaria did not say how many students were injured, but he said there were 44 people on board, including the driver, five chaperones and 38 students. "This could've been tragic".

The accident occurred on Eagle Avenue in Lakeview, near the Airport.

Police say the driver and the 43 passengers were taken to the hospital; two with serious injuries and five with what they are calling moderate injuries. He estimated the height of the clearance to be less than 10 feet.

The injuries ranged from broken bones and cuts to scrapes, Candelaria said. David Candelaria revealed (in the below CBS News clip) that some passengers had to be extricated from the bus. The Nassau County police and the Lakeview Volunteer Fire Department set up a mass-casualty treatment triage and saved lives. It was not clear of which schools they are affiliated with.

Forty-two people were injured in the crash, according to New York State Police Maj.

The crumpled bus, its door hanging open, straddled the right lane and the grassy shoulder off the road. Seats were visible where windows used to be.

Glass and metal littered the roadway.

Commercial vehicles such as the bus involved in the incident are not allowed on New York State parkways because the bridges are so low in certain areas, ABC News reports. The bus was operated by Irvington, New Jersey-based Journey Bus Lines.

'The trip was part of EF Education Tours.as far as injuries, this was treated as a mass casualty incident, ' Candelaria added.

This is not the first time an oversized vehicle has struck the Eagle Avenue bridge.

A bus that was carrying teenagers sits on the side of the roadway after it hit an overpass on the Southern State Parkway in Lakeview, N.Y., Sunday, April 8, 2018.

The infrared sensors detect vehicles that are too tall nearing or entering a parkway ramp and trigger an alert to the driver on an overhead electronic road sign that warns the driver to pull over.

It wasn't just a bump.

The driver will be subjected to drug and alcohol tests, according to police. The top of the bus was sheared off by the impact of the crash.
