Tour bus crashes near Indianapolis, 14 injured

GREENWOOD, IN (AP) -

Police say a double-decker tour bus flipped onto its side on a highway near Indianapolis, injuring 18 people.

State police Sgt. Rich Myers says the bus carrying more than 50 people crashed about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday on Interstate 65. He says it struck a car that had crashed 10 minutes earlier. The bus went into the median, struck a cable barrier and overturned.

Myers says the most serious injury is a possible broken arm. He says the driver of the car and 10 passengers were treated for pain, bruises and small cuts. Most of the injured passengers are Illinois residents.

Myers says an inspection of the bus found no pre-existing mechanical issues.

A Megabus statement says the bus was traveling from Atlanta to Chicago.
