    A bus carrying high school students crashed into a highway overpass in the US state of New York, injuring most of the 44 passengers on board, media reported, citing local police.

    According to the ABC broadcaster, the incident took place on Long Island late on Sunday. The roof of the bus was scrapped off, injuring 42 out of 44 passengers, with many injuries described by the police as serious.

    Charter buses like the one involved in the accident are not allowed on New York State parkways because the bridges over them are too low to provide these vehicles clearance, the broadcaster noted.

    The bus was reportedly transporting students from John F. Kennedy International Airport after they had returned from their trip to Europe. Students were heading to a nearby shopping center to meet with their parents when the accident occurred.
