(Newser) – Next on your bus tour: a tractor-trailer hurtling across the roadway. That was the nightmare scenario for a charter bus driver in Virginia early Sunday when a semi lost control and overturned on Interstate 64, WTVR reports. With 20 passengers on board the Silver Lining Tours bus, it struck the semi and ripped it in half. Over a dozen people were hospitalized with injuries ranging from minor to serious, but no one was killed, per CNN. A Virginia State Police rep blamed the crash on "heavy fog and icy road conditions." The terrifying incident triggered at least seven relatively minor accidents. (In related news, a Hollywood actress was in a pretty scary crash.)
