29 people injured in bus, car accident on I-75

WOOD COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Ohio State Highway Patrol tells Toledo News Now a bus and car crashed at mile marker 173 on northbound I-75, just south of Bowling Green and near North Baltimore. It happened just after 10:30 P.M. Tuesday night.

I-75 northbound lanes were closed at that marker. The highway re-opened within two hours.

Police on the scene say the bus was a work bus, transporting employees of the Consolidated Biscuit Company - also known as the Cookie Factory - in McComb.

Police say the bus rear-ended a Toyota Camry. All five people, including two infants, in the Camry were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Twenty-nine people on the bus were hurt, including one person who was transported by medical helicopter to the hospital. None of the injuries, however, seem to be life threatening.

Police say alcohol is not a factor.
