The driver of a coach bus that crashed into a tractor trailer on the I-95 has died on Wednesday afternoon, officials confirmed. Henry J. Woolfson, 31, of Hackensack, N.J., was killed when his bus rear-ended a truck near southbound Exit 14.
Woolfsen was pinned in the bus and had to be extricated by firefighters from Norwalk, Conn. He was rushed to Norwalk Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Nineteen of the 42 passengers on the bus were also injured in the fatal crash. Those injuries were not considered life-threatening, fire officials said. Three passengers were sent to Stamford Hospital and the other 16 were taken to Norwalk Hospital.
