A Baltimore County Fire Department spokeswoman said the bus, which was heading from North Carolina to New York, ended up "wedged" on top of the traffic circle after the driver lost control of the vehicle around 5 a.m.

None of the passengers were injured, but traffic along southbound Route 702 at Hyde Park Drive was blocked by the bus. Motorists were forced to take Back River Neck Road until the accident was cleared around 8 a.m., fire department officials said.
