(CBS) — More than a dozen people were hurt after a Megabus bound for Chicago rolled over south of Indianapolis in Greenwood early Tuesday morning. The bus was traveling from Atlanta.
The crash occurred at around 4:30 a.m. One person was taken to the hospital in critical condition, four others had moderate injures and 14 had minor injuries, according to the Greenwood Fire Department.READ MORE: Over 23,000 Unemployment Claims Filed In Illinois Last Week Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
Police believe the driver of the bus may have swerved to avoid a different crash on I-65 and that the wet roads may have played a role in the crash. One vehicle involved in the earlier crash was in the road, forcing oncoming traffic out of that lane. Indiana State Police say the bus driver swerved and then overcorrected and the bus tipped over on its side in the median.
