Late Sunday night, a Morning Star coach bus carrying 31 passenger crashed into a ravine on the westbound side of the Massachusetts Turnpike in Grafton. Emergency crews remained on the scene of the bus accident early Monday morning.
Police told the Boston Channel that five passengers were transported to UMass Medical Center in Worcester to be treated for back and neck injuries.
The bus was traveling to Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut when the bus accident occurred just after 11pm Sunday evening. Though the cause of the bus accident has not been confirmed, snowy conditions may have been a factor in the accident.
