    Police say 11 people were hurt but none seriously when a bus crashed on Interstate 94 in southeastern Wisconsin.

    The Kenosha County sheriff's office says the coach-style commercial bus was returning from Milwaukee to the Chicago area when the driver suffered an apparent medical condition and collapsed at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

    The bus, carrying 34 passengers, was going about 60 mph when it drifted into a concrete wall along the freeway's right shoulder, striking the wall two or three times before coming to rest.

    Authorities say a passenger took the wheel after realizing the driver was no longer in his seat.

    The 68-year-old driver was admitted to a Kenosha hospital. The driver was cooperative with the investigation and was not ticketed.

    Eleven passengers were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
