BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) — Two people are seriously injured and eight others had minor injuries after a tractor-trailer sideswiped a tour bus that had pulled to the side of Interstate 70 east of Kansas City with a flat tire.
The Kansas City Star (bit.ly/1T2w1Fk) reports the tour bus carrying the driver and nine passengers was headed from St. Louis to a company in Overland Park, Kansas, on Monday to when the driver felt a tire was flat and pulled over.
Missouri State Highway Patrol spokesman Collin Stosberg says the semitrailer veered out of its lane around 10:45 a.m. and struck the bus, pushing it down an embankment.
The uninjured truck driver was cited for careless and imprudent driving.
