Indiana State Police say a tour bus carrying members of a family to Chicago for a reunion has crashed in northern Indiana, injuring the driver and nine passengers.

No one was seriously injured Thursday when the bus carrying 25 members of an extended family traveling from Indianapolis to Chicago crashed along Interstate 65 about 35 miles south of Gary.

The driver and injured passengers were taken to two local hospitals with minor injuries. Six children on the bus were unhurt in the noontime crash.

The crash happened when a semi moved into Interstate 65's right shoulder at the same moment as the bus after the drivers of both vehicles noticed traffic ahead had suddenly slowed down.

The bus struck the semi and went into a ditch, but remained upright.
