Alton Police investigated a multi-vehicle accident involving a Madison County Transit bus at the intersection of Highway 67 and 9th Street earlier today.  Two other vehicles were involved in the crash, which backed up traffic for more than an hour.

Alton Fire Department Battalion Chief Tom House says there were only a few minor injuries associated with the accident.

House comments

House says he doesn't believe the weather was a factor in the accident, which remains under investigation by the Alton Police Department.
