Cambridge Rindge and Latin senior Jonathan Sung will never forget his Sunday ski trip.


Sung, 17, who was on a school bus with the high school's ski club, was sleeping when it felt like the bus he was riding in hit two logs. Little did he know, the bus was part of a major 59-car pileup in New Hampshire on the northbound lanes of Interstate 93 around 9 a.m.


"All I saw in front of me were cars ... from all angles," said Sung, who was with about 40 to 45 other students. "I looked behind me and all i saw were more cars. And underneath me, there was a car. We were literally on top of their windshield."


The bus had braked without hitting any cars, but one car was wedged underneath the bus from behind, Sung said. Other cars were totaled around them. "We saw people leaving on stretchers," said Sung.


Nobody was injured on the bus, Sung said. The students returned to Cambridge after three-to-four hours stuck on the roadway, but not before stopping at a nearby Dunkin' Donuts.


"That's where we saw it on the news," he said.
