Highway crews opened the roadway Friday morning after the crash involving a Greyhound bus and over a dozen trucks on Interstate 90.

Bus passenger Greg Carmichael tells Fox 8 News he was heading home to Buffalo, New York. He says about an hour into the ride the weather conditions worsened and a truck hit the bus from behind, causing a domino-effect crash.

He says several people on the bus were seriously injured.
