THE WOODLANDS, Texas — At least six people were injured in a crash involving a Greyhound tour bus and an 18-wheeler on Interstate 45 heading south in The Woodlands Thursday morning.

State Troopers say the big rig driver was hurt but is not in critical condition. Five of the 26 passengers from the bus were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.
The bus, on its way from Dallas to Houston, was disabled on the outside shoulder when it was struck by the 18-wheeler. The big rig was transporting water bottles which were left scattered along the freeway.
The big rig also took out a large traffic sign along the freeway.
Motorists are encouraged to take connect with 242 westbound to Gosling and then Woodlands Parkway or wait out the 20+ minute delay on the frontage road of I-45.
