The roof of the bus was scrapped off, injuring 42 out of 44 passengers, with many injuries described by the police as serious. David Candelaria. Thirty-seven other passengers suffered minor injuries.

Candelaria said the driver, who was not identified and was being evaluated, "obviously wasn't aware of the parkway system" and its restrictions on commercial vehicles.

The department said that evidence from the scene is being processed by detectives as well as the San Mateo County Crime Lab. Nasim Aghdam had a large internet presence, before her clips and account was deleted in the aftermath of the shooting .

Traffic in both directions of the parkway was stalled following the incident, as fire and police officials inspected the bus and scene.

With a height of just under 8 feet, the overpass "has one of the lowest clearances of any bridge on any Long Island parkway", the Baldwin Herald reported in 2015. "We were very lucky", he said, adding that the emergency response "probably saved lives".

According to police, the initial investigation revealed that Gaston possessed a valid Pennsylvania Commercial Driver's License.

The students were returning from their spring break vacation in Europe. The driver is reportedly under review.

The driver also didn't have the benefit of a high-tech warning system being installed by the state Department of Transportation that uses electronic sensors that emit invisible beams to detect any trucks or buses heading toward low overpasses along parkways built in the 1930s and 1940s for cars alone.
