Some Bus Passengers Return After Crash, 4 Still Hospitalized In Boston

Posted: Updated:
BRISTOL, Pa. -

A group of high students and parents are back in Bucks County after a dream trip to Boston turned into a nightmare.

FOX 29 cameras were there as some of them arrived back in Bristol early Monday morning.

The teens and chaperones, from the Destined for a Dream Foundation, were on their way home from a tour of Harvard University when their charter bus struck an overpass Saturday night.

In all, 35 people were injured in the crash.

Four people are still in the hospital early Monday, including, 16-year-old Matthew Cruz of Neshaminy High School, who is in critical condition.

Police say the driver of the bus "failed to observe and heed signs warning of a 10-foot height limit." The bus is from Calvary Coach, which is run out of West Philadelphia.

The investigation is on-going and police say it will take 2 to 6 weeks.

Investigators spent Sunday looking for more evidence. They want to know how long the driver had been on the clock before the crash.

We spoke with some of the victims and their families about the terrifying moment.

FOX 29's Chris O'Connell had more in this live video report from Boston on Monday morning.
