FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Fifteen people have been taken to hospitals in central Kentucky after a bus carrying teenagers from a suburban Indianapolis church crashed.

Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton says the wreck happened shortly after 10 a.m. Monday on eastbound Interstate 64 as the 36-passenger bus approached slow traffic from an earlier wreck. Melton says the bus rear-ended a sport-utility vehicle, injuring 13 people from the bus as well as a woman and child in the SUV.

Melton says the injured were taken to Frankfort Regional Medical Center and University of Kentucky Hospital with mostly minor injuries.

The bus was carrying a group from Hamilton Hills Baptist Church of Fishers, Indiana, to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Those who weren’t injured were taken to a Frankfort church to await another bus to carry them home.
