No other vehicles were involved in the crash, which is being investigated by Maryland State Police, officials with the Baltimore County Fire Department said.

Dan Rodriguez, a Megabus spokesman, said in an email that the bus driver was among 15 people who were taken to the hospital.

Several people have already been discharged and will be provided transportation to their final destination, the spokesman said.

The company will conduct a thorough investigation into what happened, but Rodríguez would not comment further on the circumstances surrounding the accident.

"Our top priority is the safety of our customers and employees," Rodriguez said.

Phil Givens, who lives nearby and took drone footage of the bus, said the crash happened on the south side of the road.

He said that particular stretch is straight.

"They have been doing work, but on the north side," he said by phone.

Taylor Morningstar, who works for a local shop that towed the bus, said by phone that a tire on the passenger side was "almost totally damaged, probably due to the way that (the bus) went into that ravine."

"It looked like they had kicked in the windshield to start getting (people) off the bus," Morningstar said.

He added that the bus had a skylight in the roof that was splintered from the impact
