Tour Bus Rolls Over In NH, Up To 20 Hurt

LITTLETON, N.H. (CBS/AP) – A tour bus with more than 20 people aboard rolled over in New Hampshire, closing Interstate 93, authorities said on Monday night.

The Littleton Fire Department said most of the 20 passengers were taken to four area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Troopers said the highway was shut down in Littleton in northwest New Hampshire, near the Vermont border. It’s unclear where the bus was headed.

Fire officials said it was snowing at the time and road conditions were slippery.

    I drive up 93 last week during the rainstorm but it was snowing in NH. The interstate was not treated or plowed north of Tilton. I was on the highway at 10:00 am heading north and at 1:00 pm heading south. I can only think that this may have been a factor in this accident

    Hi and GLA who travel with roads that have fog, black ice, Roads still can be very dangerous. The road changes with the weather! Be careful out there!
