Four people were hurt when a tractor-trailer driver swerved and hit a Prince William County OmniRide commuter bus on eastbound I-66 Thursday morning, police said.
The bus driver and four passengers were taken to hospitals for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. One bus passenger reported no injuries.
The tractor-trailer driver was in the left lane when traffic came to a sudden stop near the 55 mile marker. The driver, a King George resident, swerved and struck the bus “in an effort to avoid the stopped traffic,” Virginia State Police said in a statement. The tractor-trailer also hit an SUV, whose driver was not hurt.
The driver of the tractor-trailer was charged with making an unsafe lane change. He was not injured.
The crash delayed traffic and remains under investigation.
