3 hospitalized after charter bus crashes into guard rail in Rosenberg

A Transportes del Norte charter bus crashed when it slammed into a guard rail at the Highway 36 exit from I-69, said Rosenberg Police Department Assistant Chief Jarret Nethery.

Rosenberg police tweeted that the wreck has the Highway 36 exit closed from the I-69 northbound lanes.

The main lanes are open, but drivers should expect delays.

Nethery said three people, including one of the bus drivers, were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The second bus driver was sleeping.

No other vehicles were involved.

Officials say passengers were sleeping when the crash happened. Many had bloody noses, cuts on their legs and scrapes.

Passengers told reporters they woke up after the crash, and people were on the floor.

Passengers started helping each other out of the back of the bus, because the front was too damaged.
The bus started in Matamoros, Mexico and was headed to Tennessee.
At least 20 people could be seen walking away from the bus toward the highway.

Authorities say they are still investigating what led the bus to crash into the guard rail.
