CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Emergency personnel in Charlotte say a tour bus and two tractor-trailers were involved in a crash on Interstate 77 southbound.

MEDIC spokesman Lester Oliva said 35 people were on the tour bus that was reported to be on its way to Florida from Statesville on Friday. Oliva said five people aboard the bus were treated on the scene and that one person was taken to the hospital with minor aches and pains. It wasn’t known if that person was on the bus or in the tractor-trailers.

Authorities expected to shut down I-77 long enough to remove the damaged vehicles from the road.
