2 Still Critical from Miami Airport Bus Crash

MIAMI (AP) — Two passengers on the bus that smashed into a concrete overpass at Miami International Airport remain in critical condition in a hospital.

Officials at Ryder Trauma Center and the Jackson Memorial Hospital Emergency Room say three other patients are in stable condition and seven have been discharged. One person died at the hospital after Saturday's crash and another died at the scene.

Hospital officials held a news conference Tuesday, but doctors declined to release specific details about the types of injuries the passengers sustained.

Police have not charged or cited the driver of the bus carrying 32 members of a Jehovah's Witnesses group. Doctors say the hospital has procedures in place to deal with any religious group, such as Jehovah's Witnesses, that does not take blood transfusions.
