Overturned bus on GSP leaves 6 injured

A passenger bus accident left six people injured when it ran off the Garden State Parkway southbound near exit 113 and flipped on its side.

Emergency crews transported the six injured passengers to nearby hospitals with minor injuries.

The driver, 35-year-old Yechiel Bruzda, of Brooklyn, N.Y., was driving the passengers back to Lakewood after they attended a wedding in New Square, N.Y. Officials say 22 passengers were on board the chartered bus when it veered off the road.

State Police officials say driver fatigue was the main factor of the crash.
