Casino-bound bus skids off Mass. highway
GRAFTON, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts state police are investigating after a bus headed for a Connecticut casino skidded off the Massachusetts Turnpike and down an embankment.
Sgt. Timothy Finn said none of the 31 passengers was seriously hurt late Sunday. He said five people were treated for neck and back injuries at UMass Medical Center in Worcester.
The bus from Morning Sun Bus Company in Quincy slid off the road in snowy conditions at about 11 p.m. It came to rest upright after hitting a guardrail.
The bus was headed for Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Conn.
Finn said he did not know what caused the crash, or if any charges would be filed.
A person who answered the phone at the bus company said no one was immediately available to comment.
