    Eight people were taken to the hospital after a bus crashed into a Connecticut Department of Transportation vehicle on Interstate 95 in Old Saybrook on Wednesday night.

    State police said the bus, operating out of Quincy, Massachusetts, was traveling north on I-95 and approaching a construction area just before 11 p.m. when it hit the back of a Department of Transportation truck.

    The 53-year-old Haddam man in the DOT truck and seven passengers from the bus were transported to hospitals. All the passengers on the bus are from New York, according to the news release from state police.

    The driver of the bus, 58-year-old Qingsheng, of Corona, New York, was cited for failure to maintain lane, traveling too fast for conditions and failure to move over and reduce speed, the state police news release says.
