Passengers said that the speeding bus got pinned at the rear of the truck.
Two persons who were in the front seat were also pinned and were only released when public spirited citizens pulled forward the mangled front of the bus.
Among the injured: Sister Hoodith of Melanie Damishana whose hip was broken. She is a patient at the Intensive Care Unit of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
