Bus accident injures 25

BELVIDERE, Ill. (AP) — Twenty-five people were injured Sunday when their Minnesota-based tour bus hit an Interstate 90 toll plaza near Rockford and overturned.
The bus was carrying 27 people, mostly senior citizens, home to Wisconsin and Minnesota from a trip to New York. It hit the back of a tractor-trailer cab, struck an upright supporting the toll plaza canopy and fell on its side in an empty lane, State Police Master Sgt. Thomas Reilly said.
The bus driver said he lost control of the bus after he felt dizzy upon entering the toll plaza, Reilly said.
One passenger was in intensive care, and three others were in fair condition at St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, said Judy Glocke, a nursing supervisor.
At Highland Community Hospital in Belvidere, one woman was in stable condition with fractured ribs and a head injury. Eight other people were being treated there for contusions, sprains and other minor injuries, Dr. Joseph Levenstein said.
Twelve people were treated for minor injuries at St. Joseph Medical Center in Belvidere, said Laura Nie, director of patient care services.
No one outside the bus was injured. The toll collectors’ booths are protected by concrete barriers, Reilly said.
The bus was due in Minneapolis on Sunday after a 10-day trip, said John Hall, president of Anderson House Tours of Wabasha, Minn., the company that arranged the trip.
