Vigil for bus accident victim

PENNDEL, Pa. -

A Bucks County community has held a vigil to pray for those injured in a bus crash in Boston, including a Neshaminy High School student who is seriously hurt.

Community members gathered Monday at Our Lady of Grace Church in Penndel for a candlelight vigil to pray for the injured.

The community also collected money for 16-year-old Matt Cruz, a Neshaminy High School sophomore who was seriously hurt. It will go to his family to help pay for his care.

The bus slammed into a bridge Saturday night, critically injuring one and hospitalizing dozens of others.

Officials say a total of 42 Bucks County residents were on the bus when it crashed after a tour of Harvard University. Most have returned home with minor injuries.
