A bus carrying 40 students from Princeton on their way to a football game at the Yale Bowl crashed into a West Haven glass company building Saturday morning, police said.
Police said the bus driver and four students with minor injuries were taken to an area hospital. The bus driver had to be extricated from the bus by emergency crews.
The bus crashed into Anderson Glass on Campbell Avenue, just off exit 43 off I-95. The building was seriously damaged from the impact.
John Anderson, president of Anderson glass, said that luckily no one in his shop was hurt when the bus crashed. Only one employee was inside when it happened and another worker had just left.
Anderson said the building is destroyed and he’ll have to rebuild it.
“It’s all gone. The bus is in the middle of it right now,” he said. “It’s OK, as long as no one is hurt. This stuff happens.”
With his shop located just off I-95, Anderson said he’s seen accidents by his business before.
“From what I understand, this isn’t the steepest ramp in the city but there’s been a couple of accidents here,” he said.
Students who were not injured took a separate bus to the football game.
