39 children injured in bus accident

PARSIPPANY — Police said 39 children from a Pennsylvania sports camp have received minor injuries in an accident involving four school buses on Interstate 80 in New Jersey.

Trooper Christopher Kay said it appears one bus rear-ended another bus, and the other two vehicles sustained minor damage in the accident Thursday in Parsippany.

Trooper Kay says the buses were taking 9- and 10-year-olds from Lindenmere Sports Camp in Tannersville, Pa., to the Six Flags Great Adventure amusement park in Jackson, N.J. He says there were more than 100 passengers on the four buses.

The trooper said the children complained of pain or simple cuts and bruises. Two adults on the buses also were taken to the hospital to be checked out.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.


JetBlue pilot who left cockpit pleads not guilty

AMARILLO — A JetBlue Airways pilot who left the cockpit during a flight and screamed about religion and terrorists has pleaded not guilty to interfering with a flight crew.

Court records show Clayton F. Osbon entered the plea at his Thursday arraignment in federal court in Amarillo.

U.S. District Judge Mary Lou Robinson ruled earlier this month that Mr. Osbon is mentally competent to stand trial. Her ruling followed a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation.

Mr. Osbon was indicted after a March 27 incident on a flight from Las Vegas to New York. Passengers said they had to wrestle him to the floor after he left the cockpit midflight and ran through the plane’s cabin yelling about Jesus and al Qaeda.

No trial date has been set. Mr. Osbon faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
