GEORGETOWN, Mass. (AP) – Massachusetts state police say a bus carrying college students from Maine has crashed on a highway north of Boston.
Police says the bus driver has been seriously injured and is being taken by helicopter to a hospital. Injuries to other people are being evaluated.
Police say the bus was going southbound on Interstate 95 on Tuesday night when it crossed onto the northbound side and went into a wooded area near Georgetown, a town of about 8,000 residents 30 miles from Boston.
State police say the bus was owned by the John T. Cyr (sehr) & Sons Inc. bus line of Old Town, Maine. A man who answered the phone at the company’s office says it’s gathering information about the crash.
A state police car that stopped at the scene has been struck by another car.
