Commercial vehicles such as the bus involved in the incident are not allowed on New York State parkways because the bridges are so low in certain areas, ABC News reports. The vehicle struck the overpass, and the force of the impact sheared the top right off the bus.

A handful of State Police cruisers, their lights flashing, were parked on the eastbound side, and a few cars drove by on the westbound side.

Major David Candelaria confirmed further details about the accident in a statement to the press. Multiple ambulances and firetrucks responded to the scene. Passengers were seen covered in blankets as they waited outside.
