A collision between a tour bus and two passenger cars slowed traffic to a portion of U.S. 287 just south of Rhome on Tuesday afternoon.

The northbound traffic near CR 4639 and U.S. 287 was slowed due to the crash.

Wise County dispatchers say the tour bus had about 25 passengers on board at the time of the crash. None of those passengers were injured.

Two people in the cars suffered minor injures and are being transported from the scene.

The view from Chopper 5 showed severe damage to the passenger cars, which seemed to have ended up in a ditch alongside the highway. The tour bus also left the roadway and slid into the ditch.
