EMS Responds to Bus Flipped Onto Roof

Issue 1 and Volume 41.

Emergency personnel work at the scene of an accident involving a Lehigh University bus and a car in Bethlehem, Pa. Paramedics placed an elderly patient in full C-spine precautions, including a C-collar and backboard. The bus, carrying 20 members of the university’s men’s and women’s rowing teams, flipped onto its roof but no students had major injuries. A passenger in the car, however, didn’t survive.
