MARATHON, N.Y. -- A school bus taking students from suburban Rochester on a trip to New York City has crashed and overturned along a snowy upstate highway, slightly injuring 10 students and the driver.
State police say the crash happened Monday morning when the driver swerved to avoid two other vehicles that veered out of control in front of him on southbound Interstate 81 in the Cortland County town of Marathon, 40 miles south of Syracuse.
A statement posted on the Pittsford Central School District's website says several buses with students on board were heading to the city as part of a business course.
District officials say the buses were carrying students from Pittsford Mendon and Pittsford Sutherland high schools.
