NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Several people were injured after two passengers buses on their way to North Texas and a tractor-trailer were involved in a crash on Interstate-35 near Milford, about 50 miles south of Dallas.

According to the Texas Highway Patrol in Waco, traffic had slowed because of construction when the driver of a Megabus ran into the back of the tractor-trailer and pushed the semi into the back of another bus.

The Megabus that hit the 18-wheeler had 38 people onboard. The second passenger bus, an Americanos USA vehicle, had 48 people onboard. The driver in the tractor-trailer was alone. In all, 13 people were taken to local hospitals — all with minor injuries.

Passengers from both buses who weren’t injured were taken to a central location where additonal buses were dispatched to pick them up.

Both of the buses were en route to the Dallas-area.

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is investigating the crash.
