ST. MICHAEL, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say several people were hurt when a charter bus transporting a college basketball team from Illinois crashed on an interstate 94.

Minnesota State patrol Sergeant Jesse Gabrow says just before 7 p.m. bus driver 64-year-old Paul William Cheeseman of Milledgeville, Illinois was heading east on I-94 when he had an “unknown medical episode,” crashing the bus.

The bus driver was taken to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale with non-life-threatening injuries. Five others on the bus were taken to a Monticello hospital with ages ranging from 19-26.

The Star Tribune reports the bus had left North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton and was headed back to Highland Community College in Freeport, Illinois.
