MIAMI-- December 1, 2012
Officials say a double-decker bus has hit an overpass at Miami International Airport, killing at least one person and injuring more than two-dozen people on board.
Airport spokesman Greg Chin says the bus, which was a cruise or tour bus of some sort, hit the overpass going into the airport's arrivals section on Saturday morning. The bus was going about 20 mph when it clipped the roof entrance.
Chin says 32 people were on the bus, and all have some sort of injuries. The arrival area remained blocked off by fire trucks and police cars Saturday morning.
Chin says buses are supposed to travel through the departure area, not the arrival section, because it has a higher clearance for large vehicles.
