The bus was scheduled to make stops in Miami Twp., Vandalia, Springfield, and Cincinnati, according to the bus tour’s website.

State Police say the bus was on a downward slope when it tried to make a turn, but didn’t make it.

Two UPS Trailers, a FedEx trailer and a car that was traveling behind the tour bus all collided.

We are working to learn if anyone on that bus had any connections to our area.
