LITTLETON, N.H. (CBS/AP) – State Police say 23 people were hurt when a tour bus crashed on a snowy and icy highway in New Hampshire late Monday night.

The bus was carrying about two dozen Korean tourists from Quebec to Boston when the driver lost control on Interstate 93 south around 8 p.m. The bus rolled on its side into the median, injuring almost everyone aboard.
