1 woman killed, 2 seriously injured in New Jersey bus crash

A college student was killed and at least 20 other people injured in a recent bus crash in New Jersey. Two of those who were hurt were seriously injured.

The 21-year-old woman who lost her life attended Syracuse University and was on the way to visit her family near New York City. She was studying information technology and pursuing a minor in public communications. She also was a member of the Sigma Delta Tau sorority, according to the university.

She was riding on a regional Adirondack Trailways bus when a crash occurred. Although the accident is still under investigation, one witness told an area newspaper that as he was traveling westbound on Route 80, he saw the bus hit the median. From there, the bus went "airborne," he said.

"It was scary when it went on its rear wheels," he said. "Just a horrific, horrific scene."

"We join our campus community in keeping [the victim], her loved ones and all who knew her in our thoughts and prayers," said the senior associate vice president and dean of students in an email to

"Our office is in communication with Brianna's roommates, sorority sisters and friends. We are working to support our community, particularly those who were closest to her, as they grieve this loss," the dean of students said.

The university has brought in grief counselors to speak to students who knew the victim.

This woman was just 21 and full of promise. Her loss must be devastating to her family. We also must remember that two people suffered serious injuries that could impact them for years to come. All parties involved may want to consult with an attorney experienced in personal injury cases to discover their options.
