On Sunday, two buses collided on Interstate 95 on their way to Boston. Police say thirty passengers were sent to the hospital, and seven people were treated for minor injuries as a result of the bus accident.
The first bus, owned by Wellesley-based Ivy Tours Inc, was carrying 67 passengers when it slowed for traffic and was hit by the bus behind it. The bus collision occurred around 2:20pm between exits 42 and 43 on the northbound side of the highway in Connecticut. According to an accident reports, the driver of the second bus was cited for failure to drive a reasonable distance apart from a commercial vehicle.
Those passengers not requiring medical attention were taken to a nearby school, where they wait for replacement transportation to Boston.
