KENOSHA, Wis. — Police say 11 people were hurt but none seriously when a bus crashed on Interstate 94 in southeastern Wisconsin.
The Kenosha County sheriff’s office says the coach-style commercial bus was returning from Milwaukee to the Chicago area when the driver suffered an apparent medical condition and collapsed about 11:30 p.m. Saturday.
The bus, carrying 34 passengers, was going about 60 mph when it drifted into a concrete wall along the freeway’s right shoulder, striking the wall two or three times before coming to rest.
Authorities say a passenger took the wheel after realizing the driver was no longer in his seat.
The 68-year-old driver was admitted to a Kenosha hospital. The driver was cooperative with the investigation and was not ticketed.
Eleven passengers were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
