Emergency workers are responding to a Greyhound bus crash that injured up to 50 people in upstate New York.

The bus reportedly overturned shortly before 1:30 p.m. in the Orange County town of Wawayanda.

It was transporting students from Farmingdale High School in Nassau County to band camp at a music event in Greeley, Pennsylvania, ABC7 reported.

Sources told the channel that at least five of them were in critical condition.

New York State Police said westbound Route 84 is closed at Exit 15 as the investigation continues.

The bus appears to have left the busy road and overturned down an embankment before coming to rest in a heavily wooded area.

Rescuers scramble to save the injured on board

Westbound Highway 84 is closed at exit 15 as first responders head to the scene.

“We were informed that there had been an accident with Bus 1 en route to Greeley, Pennsylvania for band camp,” the Farmingdale School District said in a statement.

“Police and emergency services are on site, as well as the district administration. We will provide another update when more information becomes available. We ask for your patience while we gather more details.

A SUNY Orange spokesperson said the college’s physical education center will be used as a family information/reunification center.
