ERIE (AP) — Police say a Greyhound bus driver has been cited for a crash that injured 12 people on an interstate in northwestern Pennsylvania.

The accident happened around 7 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 90 in McKean Township. Police say the bus was going about 65 miles per hour when it rear-ended a flatbed truck before coming to rest in a ditch.

The driver and 11 others were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

The Erie Times-News reports the bus driver, 48-year-old Shaker Heights, Ohio, resident Mark Harris has been cited for careless driving. Firefighters say he was pinned in his seat after the crash and it took nearly 90 minutes to free him.

A Greyhound spokeswoman says the bus had left from Cleveland and was headed to New York.
