Bus Roof Sliced off as It Goes Under New York Bridge

The crash, which completely sheared off the roof of the vehicle, happened Sunday night in Lakeview.

Numerous injuries were serious and some of the passengers had to be extricated, according to New York State Police Major David Candelaria.

"Everybody was able to walk out except one, which we extricated", Lakeview Fire Chief Patrick McNeill told Newsday. "There was glass everywhere".

Passengers reported hearing someone yell "Duck!" as the bus approached the overpass, Candelaria said, but it was unclear if it was the driver.

Commercial vehicles, including charter busses, are not allowed to travel on New York State parkways because the bridges are too low to allow them to pass in certain areas. State Police still need to confirm the actual route through a forensic analysis of the device and passenger interviews.

The minimum clearance on the parkway is seven feet, 10 inches (2.38 meters) and accidents involving vehicles striking overpasses is not uncommon on the parkway, according to local reports. The bridge is one of the lowest, if not the lowest, on the entire system, according to WABC.

In December, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced a $4.3 million project to install an electronic warning system that detects when oversized vehicles enter parkways.

Traffic in both directions of the parkway was stalled following the incident, as fire and police officials inspected the bus and scene. "It's a high-impact strike".

A bus that was carrying teenage passengers sits on the side of a highway after it hit an overpass on the Southern State Parkway in Lakeview, N.Y., Monday, April 9, 2018.

The bus was operated New Jersey-based Journey Bus Lines, which did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment. "The police are looking into it and our insurance has been notified".
