(CBS) – Eleven people were hospitalized after a Greyhoud bus on its way from Toronto to Chicago crashed in central Michigan.

Thirty-six passengers and the driver were on the bus when it crashed with a semi-trailer truck on westbound Interstate 94, between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek, around 9:30 a.m. Chicago time.

Police said 11 people on the bus were hurt, none of them seriously. All were expected to be released from the hospital Thursday afternoon.

The driver was trapped in the bus as a result of the crash, but was not hurt.

The crash prompted police to shut down I-94 for several miles around the scene of the crash, but all lanes reopened by early Thursday afternoon.

Witnesses said a Kalamazoo city bus picked up the other passengers and took them to Kalamazoo.

A new bus picked up the passengers to proceed to Chicago, but later that vehicle broke down on the Skyway.

Yet another bus picked up the passengers and took them to the Greyhound station downtown. Greyhound says it sent representatives to help passengers with anything they needed.
