Bus flips on side on NJ highway, 18 hurt, none seriously

WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (AP) — State police say a bus has flipped onto its side on the New Jersey Turnpike amid icy conditions and 18 people were injured, none seriously.

New Jersey State Police Lt. Ted Schafer says all passengers were removed from the bus after the crash around 4 p.m. Tuesday near Woodbridge. It’s not clear how many people were on board. He says the accident involved an Alliance Transport bus based out of New Brunswick reported on northbound side of the highway. It wasn’t clear if other vehicles were involved in the accident. The roadway reopened at 5:15 p.m. Rain combined with cold temperatures created slick and icy roads around the state.
