At around 10 a.m. Saturday morning, a Coach USA bus transporting University students to the Princeton vs. Yale football game crashed into a building in West Haven, Conn., approximately 10 minutes from New Haven.

At least six ambulances were requested and at least five individuals, including the driver, have been transported to the hospital. The driver was the last to be extricated from the bus.

A University statement says the four students suffered minor injuries.

Fox 61 reported that the accident was believed to be a result of brake failure.

According to @ctnewsalert on Twitter, the bus crashed “in the vicinity of the Campbell Ave. off-ramp to I-95.”

WTNH reported that the bus crashed into a building belonging to the Anderson Glass Company, an auto glass company in West Haven.

The commercial buses were arranged by the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) to provide transportation for students to the football game at 12:30 p.m.
