Camp minibus rolls on side in Pennsylvania, injuring 9 boys

TOBYHANNA, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a camp minibus rolled onto its side in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, sending nine teenage boys to the hospital.

The crash happened early Friday near Tobyhanna.

Pocono Mountain Regional Police says one boy received injuries severe enough to necessitate being flown to a hospital in Allentown.

The bus driver and five other passengers weren’t injured.

The bus driver’s wife says in a phone interview that the boys were from Sanz Klausenberg Summer Camp in Woodbourne, New York, and had been on a trip.

She says the injuries included a broken foot and “a lot of bad scratches on the head. Miracles, a lot of miracles.”

The driver referred questions to the Sanz Klausenberg Summer Camp office, where a woman who answered the phone said officials were not immediately available.
