Littleton, NH— A tour bus crash on Interstate 93 injured 23 people, five seriously, when it slid off the icy and snow-covered highway on Monday, March 21, 2011. The bus accident occurred just after 8 p.m., as the bus was headed to Boston from Quebec, reported the Union Leader.
According to police officials, the 23 injured victims were rushed by emergency crews from across northern New Hampshire and Vermont to area hospitals, including Littleton Regional, Cottage Hospital in Woodsville, Weeks Medical Center in Lancaster and Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital in St. Johnsbury.
