MegaBus Accident - Greenwood
The police shut down both directions of I-65 at Greenwood, after a double-decker Megabus overturned. The Megabus carrying between 50 and 60 people crashed around 4:30 a.m.
The Fire Department reported one person was taken to a hospital in critical condition, while 18 suffered personal injuries.
The bus was headed from Georgia to Chicago, the driver of the bus swerved to avoid an earlier one-car crash in the northbound lanes of I-65. Police say the Megabus clipped the back of that car, causing the bus to tip on its side in the median.
