4 dead, multiple injuries in I-95 bus wreck in Va.

BOWLING GREEN, Va. — The Virginia State Police says four people are dead and there are multiple injuries after a tour bus overturned on Interstate 95 in central Virginia.

State police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the commercial tour bus ran off the road before dawn Tuesday and turned onto its roof about a quarter mile south of the Carmel Church exit.

Geller says police haven't determined how many people were on the bus, which can hold 59 passengers. The injured were taken to hospitals in Richmond and Fredericksburg.

The bus' destination hasn't been released. The cause of the crash hasn't been determined.

The Virginia Department of Transportation says the northbound lanes are expected to remain closed at mile marker 104 for several hours.
