Officials say the bus was carrying 32 people when it crashed into the overpass. Airport spokesman Greg Chin says the bus was too high to pass beneath the 8-foot-6-inch overhang at the arrivals area.

He says buses and other large vehicles are supposed to go through the departures area, which has a higher clearance.

Cordero-Stutz says the driver, who is being interviewed by investigators, was not familiar with the area and did not intend to wind up at the airport.
