Five dead,  60 hospitalised in Pennsylvania Turnpike crash

AP – Five people were killed and about 60 were injured on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in the United States (US) last Sunday, when a loaded bus went out of control on a hill and rolled over, setting off a chain reaction that involved three tractor-trailers and a passenger car. The injured victims, ranging from seven to 67 years old, are all expected to survive, though two patients remain in critical condition, authorities and hospital officials said last Sunday afternoon. The crash, which happened at 3.40am on a mountainous and rural stretch of the interstate about 50 kilometres east of Pittsburgh, shut down the highway in both directions for several hours before it reopened.  More details in Tuesday’s Borneo Bulletin
