A tour bus overturned early Saturday morning on the New England Thruway in the Bronx, killing 13 people. Six others have been transported with critical injuries.

More than 60 firefighters were on the scene. A spokesperson for FDNY told WCBS, “The bus flipped over on its side. The roof of the bus was sheered off by that light pole. This is very bad.”

There were 31 passengers and a driver aboard, headed to New York City from Mohegan Sun, a casino in Connecticut.
