Buses collide on snowy Dan Ryan Expressway
Another round of snow in Chicago made the commute tricky again.
Two buses collided on the Dan Ryan Expressway Wednesday morning, sending eight children and one adult to area hospitals.
Illinois State Police say a Megabus and a bus carrying preschool youngsters crashed around 7 a.m in the southbound lanes of the expressway at 51st street.
Police say it appears one bus was exiting while the other was entering the Ryan.
The nine victims – all from the school bus – were taken to local hospitals in fair to good condition, while 28 others refused treatment at the scene.
The accident forced police to close the outbound lanes for awhile during the morning rush.
