(BARTHOLOMEW CO) - Several people are recovering after a Megabus crash closed down portions of I-65 Northbound in Bartholomew County Saturday morning.

According to Indiana State Police Trooper Matt Holley, around 5:25 a.m., a Megabus carrying around 26 passengers and two drivers was traveling south on I-65 within the 55 mile marker when it slid off the road into the median and fell over onto the driver's side.

Several passengers were injured during the crash. Some injured passengers were transported to Schneck Medical Center in Seymour by Jackson County EMS and at least one was transported to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis at the time of the news release. Uninjured passengers were taken to Seymour Middle School as local American Red Cross hosted them for shelter.

Trooper Holley stated that changing weather conditions and speed may have contributed to the cause of this crash.

Seymour Police Department arrived on scene around 5:30 a.m. and located the Megabus on its side across the median. Indiana State Police was assisted on the scene by Jackson County EMS and Seymour Division of INDOT. There were several other crashes in the area of this crash site while the investigation was being conducted. The investigation is on-going. I will update this release when further information is gathered.
