35 Injured as Bus Transporting Virginia College Students Overturns.

None of the 34 other injuries was believed to be life-threatening — mainly bumps, bruises and other injuries “that would be consistent with a vehicle accident” — Lt. The bus was carrying 50 passengers — many of them students from Virginia Tech and Radford universities and the University of Virginia — when it flipped on a Powhite Parkway ramp in Richmond, said Sgt. The students were being transported back to their colleges on a bus operated by a local ride-share transportation service when it overturned about 7:15 p.m., according to state police. Parents flocked to the scene and to their children’s colleges as word of the accident spread. “When you have a bus of this size with that many students that are on it and that overturns like this in a crash, we’re very fortunate that there were not more injured than there were,” Elmore said.
