A crash between a flatbed truck and a Greyhound bus injured more than a dozen people on Thursday. The collision happened at about 4:30 PM in Rockcastle County, KY when Greyhound bus 1104 was traveling from Atlanta to Cincinnati. The right side of the Greyhound had caved in and the truck was flipped over onto the side of I-75. Investigators say the driver of the bus, Vincent Watts (64) of Atlanta, was in the center lane of I-75 when the bus left the lane and hit the truck, driven by Cary Harrison of Richmond. Passenger Lewii Kynee told WKYT-TV that the impact of the crash forced passengers on the bus forward. Another passenger, Joseph Harness, helped people get out of the bus through a window.
At least 17 people were injured in the crash. The Mount Vernon Fire Department says the injured people were taken to hospitals in Berea, Richmond, and Rockcastle counties. Six people went to UK HealthCare. At this time, officials are unclear as to what caused the crash but are investigating allegations that the bus driver was on his phone before the crash.
