(BALTIMORE) —  Two people are critically injured after a bus overturned on Interstate 95 north of Baltimore, Maryland, this morning, causing massive traffic delays.

The local fire department, Susquehanna Hose Co., said one adult and one child were taken via helicopter to hospitals after the accident on the southbound side of I-95 at Exit 89.

Everyone else on board — 25 children and three adults — were taken via ambulances to hospitals, Susquehanna Hose Co. said.

Maryland State Police said the cause of the crash isn’t known, but “a passenger car was apparently involved in some way” and the driver is being interviewed.

The accident closed both sides of the interstate but northbound lanes have since reopened. The southbound side is expected to reopen Monday afternoon, the state police said.

According to local fire officials, the children and chaperones were part of a caravan of buses heading from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., for today’s law enforcement officers’ memorial service. On the other buses were police cadets who helped first responders get patients off the bus and request help, according to fire officials.
