Authorities say a charter bus that hit a bridge in Boston has been cleared from the accident scene and a major crosstown road reopened.

Boston police say the Calvary Coach bus driver failed to heed low-clearance warning signs Saturday night on Soldier's Field Road. Emergency officials say 34 people were injured, including one person with life-threatening injuries.

Some passengers were trapped for more than an hour as rescue crews worked to free them. State police say guardrails were repaired and the road reopened Sunday morning.

Authorities say the bus was carrying a group of high school students and their adult chaperones home to the Philadelphia area after a visit to Harvard University.

The students were part of a Destined for a Dream Foundation group, a Bristol, Pa.-based nonprofit that helps underprivileged young people.
