RAMAPO, N.Y. (AP) ' New York State police say five people have been injured in an accident involving a tour bus and a tractor trailer in a suburb north of New York City.
Sgt. Michael Kopp says the driver of the Trailways bus and four passengers were taken to hospitals around Rockland County.
He says the injured had to be extricated from the bus, but their conditions weren't believed to be life threatening.
The accident occurred at 5:35 a.m. on the New York Thruway near the Ramapo service area, about 35 miles north of the city. Both the bus and truck were traveling southbound.
Kopp says the remaining 12 passengers were placed on another Trailways bus that was headed for New York City.
