"There was a lot of kids crying and mostly everyone that got off the bus was bleeding," said Josh Keys, a witness. "The scene was a mess. But mostly everyone was able to walk out. Some people had to be carried out. I helped a few people out then I left because it started to get really hectic. When I left there was no police or ambulance on the scene. After driving North on the turnpike for five minutes I saw the police on the way."
State Police say the vehicles involved in the crash include several cars, four tractor-trailers, two box trucks and a fully loaded bus. At approximately 9:11 p.m., the New Jersey State Police responded to a multi-vehicle crash on the New Jersey Turnpike at milepost 71.3 in the southbound lanes, according to the State Police’s Facebook page, reports Patch.com.
