Miami Airport: Two Dead After Bus Hits Overpass

A bus has hit an overpass at Miami International Airport, killing at least two people and injuring dozens more, according to officials.

Airport spokesman Greg Chin said the bus, thought to be a cruise or tour bus, hit the overpass going into the airport's arrivals section this morning.

It was travelling at around 20mph when it clipped the roof entrance, he said.

Some 32 people were on board the bus and it is believed all of them were injured, including three critically.

The arrivals area remains blocked off by fire trucks and police cars.

Mr Chin said buses are supposed to travel through the departure area, because it has a higher clearance for large vehicles.

Miami-Dade police lieutenant Rosanna Cordero-Stutz said the bus was privately owned.

It was unclear where it was travelling to, but Ms Cordero-Stutz said the driver was unfamiliar with the area and had not intended to go to the airport.
