Littleton, NH, United States (AHN) – More than a dozen people were injured Monday night after a tour bus bound for Boston crashed in New Hampshire.
According to local reports, as many as 23 Korean tourists on a bus from the eastern Canadian province of Quebec were hurt when the vehicle rolled over near the border of Vermont.
The bus operated by New Jersey-based PRT tours was carrying a total of 25 people. At least four of the injured suffered serious wounds, but none were reported life threatening.
The New Hampshire Department of Transportaion said the crash took place shortly after 8:00 pm along Interstate 93 in Littleton, where a winter speed advisory of 45 miles per hour was in effect due to icy conditions.
Following the crash, officials worked to clean up an engine fuel that spilled in the area. The northbound and southbound lanes of I-93 between exits 42 and 43 remained closed until early morning.
The incident is the third tour bus accident in the region this month. Last week, two people died and 41 others were injured when a bus traveling to Philadelphia crashed on the New Jersey Turnpike. The tragedy took place as the National Transportation Board investigates why a bus operated by World Wide Tours crashed in the Bronx as it was on its way to Chinatown on I-95, killing 15 passengers.
