Greyhound Bus Rolls Over, injuring 17 people
The Hall County Sheriff's office says a Greyhound bus slid off I-80 near Wood River, Nebraska, and a Greyhound spokesperson says 17 people were injured including the driver. The bus was traveling from Omaha, Nebraska to Cheyenne, Wyoming. The bus did make a stop in Lincoln and was scheduled to make a stop in Kearney. We do know one person is in critical condition at Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney and six others were reported in fair condition. Ten others were taken to St. Francis hospital in Grand Island. A spokesperson at St. Francis told Channel 8 Eyewitness News this morning that eight of the ten people transfered were treated for minor injuries. No fatalities were reported and we don't believe the remaining two patients were treated for injuries. Several uninjured passengers were taken to the Wood River Fire Station. Hall County Sheriff Jerry Watson says the bus driver was trying to avoid a jacknifed semi when the bus lost control on the icy interstate. Watson says the bus overturned. Greyhound has set up a toll free number so loved ones can check on patient conditions. That number is 1-800-987-2325.
