State police on Long Island say a bus has struck a bridge overpass.

A Pennsylvania man was driving a bus full of high school students that hit a bridge overpass on Sunday on Long Island.

The driver told police he was unaware of commercial vehicle restrictions on the parkway.

'I give credit to the Nassau County Police Ambulance Bureau, Emergency Services Unit and the Lakeview Volunteer Fire Department. He reported that immediately after the first calls came in, first responders "set up a mass-casualty treatment triage", and their quick response time likely saved lives.

"We're very lucky. This could have been tragic", he added. David Candelaria said during a press conference. They say two suffered serious injuries and five have moderate injuries.

Forty-four people were on the bus, including the driver, five chaperones and 38 students. The students were on their way to meet their parents at Walt Whitman Mall in Huntington, when the bus crashed into the overpass at around 9 p.m. The trip was organized by a private tour company, EF Tours, according to police.

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

Once a location is agreed upon the officials said that the date will be set and the agenda discussed in greater detail. CNN reports that Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, is also being considered as a potential meeting place.

Passengers were also seen covered in blankets as they waited outside.

Police confirmed the individual operating the bus has a valid driver's license. The driver is reportedly under review.

The investigation into the wreck is ongoing.

The Eagle Avenue overpass in Lakeview, with a clearance of less than 10 feet, is among the lowest on the Southern State, police said.

The roof of the charter bus was seen in photos destroyed after the vehicle slammed into the low overpass.

An overpass on a New York Highway sheared off the top of a moving bus injuring more than two-dozen people.

It wasn't just a bump.
