    At least 30 people were injured in a tour bus crash Sunday in southern Bedford County, Pa.

    The crash occurred about 2:20 p.m. EST on U.S. Route 220 near Centerville, Pa., 21 miles south of Bedford, Pa.

    The bus was on its way to Rocky Gap in Cumberland, Md., at the time of the crash, Bedford County Emergency Management Director Dave Cubbison said.

    "Roads were snowy and slick in the area," Cubbison said.

    The bus driver was driving too fast for conditions, The Associated Press quoted Pennsylvania State Police, who investigated the crash.

    It had been snowing much of Sunday afternoon, AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Randy Adkins said. A band of moderate snow spotted on radar in the area about an hour before the crash.

    "Based on observations at [nearby] Johnstown, Altoona and State College, there was probably also poor visibility," Adkins said.

    Ambulances from four Pennsylvania counties and one Maryland county were sent to the scene, Cubbison said. Patients were taken to either Western Maryland Health Systems and UPMC Bedford Memorial Hospital.
