More than a dozen people were injured after a tour bus coming from Niagara Falls crashed on Interstate 81 in the town of Whitney Point, about halfway between Cortland and Binghamton.

There were 30 people on board the bus, most of whom were tourists from Poland.

One woman was trapped underneath the bus for nearly an hour, but fire crews were able to extricate here and she should be OK.

Police say wet roads contributed to the crash and the driver was speeding. This marks the third crash in upstate this summer.
