03 - 11 - 2013 Busload of PSU students catches fire near Breezewood
(CDT) A Martz Trailways bus bringing Penn State students to State College after spring break caught fire Sunday afternoon on Interstate 70 a few miles from the Breezewood exit. Caroline Hagerty, a freshman at Penn State, said she was sleeping when passengers started yelling for the bus driver to pull over. Hagerty and the rest of the passengers grabbed what they could and “ran off the bus.” She said the bus was engulfed about 5 minutes afterward, and no one was injured in the incident. The bus was one of 3 traveling from the Washington, D.C., area back to State College. The students arrived in State College on another bus late last night.
