Police ID Fatal Bus Crash Victim from N.J.
SALINA, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of the fourth person killed when a double-decker bus slammed into a low railroad bridge after making a wrong turn off a Syracuse highway.
The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department on Sunday identified 18-year-old Deanna Armstrong of Voorhees, N.J., as one of the four Megabus passengers who died when the top of the vehicle hit the bridge in Salina (suh-LY’-nuh) while en route to the Syracuse bus station early Saturday morning.
A Philadelphia college student from Kanas, a Malaysian preacher and an information technology specialist from India also died.
The driver and four of the 24 other passengers were injured. One remains in critical condition and two are in serious condition.
Police said the bus was too tall to clear the low-hanging span.
