CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a tour bus has crashed on a freeway in central Pennsylvania, and serious injuries have been reported.

Megan Silverstram of the Cumberland County public safety department says the crash in the eastbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike was reported just before 9 a.m. Saturday.

She says there are reports of multiple injuries, including that some are serious.

Photos from the scene show the bus upright on the side of the road, part of its left side shorn off, though it's not clear whether that was from impact or emergency workers attempting to reach people inside the bus. At least one person was wheeled away in a stretcher.

Silverstram says it's unclear how many people were aboard, where the bus came from or where it was going.
