Several people injured after two detasseling buses collide

Posted: Updated:

Two corn detassling buses carrying workers collide outside Hudson.

Four buses were traveling near Holmes Road and Griffith Road, when the driver of the last bus crashed into the back of the third bus.

A Black Hawk County Sheriff's Deputy says several people were taken to the hospital, but they will be OK.

The deputy says nearly 40 people were on each bus.

The deputy says the driver of the bus was cited for following too close, and she is from Marion.

A witness says the the driver of the third bus slowed down while approaching the intersection, and since there was so much dust, the driver of the last bus couldn't see them stopped.

A press release from the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Office will be released.
