Six Dead in early morning bus crash

If you have any kind of commute that involved 75, you were likely late this morning because of a tragic bus crash.

Seems a busload of college baseball players from Ohio were traveling southbound in the HOV lane and continued up the exit ramp at Northside Drive. They crashed through the guard rail and back onto the highway.

I’ll try and update the post as I know more.

UPDATE: I just overheard a news report from a co-worker’s TV that all southbound lanes are now open again. Another update on the story as I know more.

    What a tragic event. My heart and prayers are with the survivors and family of those who were lost.

    It’s major league suckage for sure, but maybe it will result in me getting an answer to the burning question of why they only have HOV on/off ramps facing the north on that exit.

    Or any exit for that matter.
