MOUNT GRETNA, PA (KMOX)-There’s no word yet on whether any St. Louis area residents were on board the St. Louis-bound Greyhound bus that overturned on the Pennsylvania Turnpike this morning.

A Pennsylvania Turnpike spokesman says the bus flipped on its side one mile east of the Lebanon-Lancaster exit. Rescue workers were called in to free one woman who was trapped inside.

The Turnpike Authority tells KMOX 21 victims were taken to three hospitals. So far the injuries are considered minor to moderate.

The bus, number 6352, on schedule number 1685, originated in New York City and had stopped in Philadelphia. It was on its way to Pittsburgh when the accident occurred.

Greyhound has set up a number friends and family members can call to check on passengers. That number is 1-800-972-4583.
