Sadly a bus filled with Italian tourists collided with a semi truck on Interstate 380 in Pennsylvania on Wednesday. The accident took place near the Pocono Mountains area and sent dozens of the passengers to the hospital. Although the exact cause of the crash is unknown, the bus was mangled after the impact and was wedged against the side of the semi. Furthermore, the semi was sliced in half and unrecognizable. Tragically three people died, yet it is unclear whether the fatalities were passengers of the semi or tour bus.
The roadway was shut down in both directions up through 115 miles north of Philadelphia. Witnesse's state that the collision sounded like a big crash, and people were suddenly heard screaming. The Italian tour bus was from the Viaggidea Company.
