Buses crash, 1 overturns on I-80

ROXBURY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - August 22, 2008 The crash happened around 10 a.m. in the westbound lanes of Interstate 80 in Roxbury Township. That's about 40 miles west of the George Washington bridge.

State police say all westbound lanes have now been reopened.

Police officials say one of the buses was braking for traffic and changing lanes when it hit the rear of the other bus. The collision sent the second bus into the median, down and embankment and onto its side.

One of the buses, operated by Atlantic Express, was taking tourists from Manhattan's Chinatown to Niagara Falls, N.Y.
