Bus Crash Causes Delay on Interstate 35

The incident happened just before 4 p.m. Wednesday

A bus crash caused delays on Interstate 35 in Hill County Wednesday afternoon, officials say.

The collision apparently involved a bus with the Tornado Bus Company and a tractor trailer. The vehicles blocked at least one lane on the northbound side of I-35 just south of Hillsboro, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

A viewer told NBC 5 that it took about 40 minutes to get through the backup.

Five people were taken to the hospital after the crash, but have been released, according to Veronica Rodriguez, a spokesperson for Tornado Bus Company.

She said she did not know the exact number of passengers, but believed it to be around 30. The company is working with local authorities to determine the cause of the crash.

The Tornado Bus Company is based in Dallas.
