Bus crashes into Massachusetts house; driver among 7 hurt

A bus has crashed into a house in a central Massachusetts town, injuring the driver and six other people.

Auburn fire Capt. Eric Otterson says the driver of the Worcester Regional Transit Authority bus was trapped for more than an hour Monday afternoon and has been hospitalized with serious injuries.

Otterson says three children and an adult were in the house when the bus struck it. He says they escaped with minor cuts even though the house was knocked off its foundation by 7 to 10 feet. He says two bus passengers were injured.

Police Chief Andrew Sluckis tells the Worcester Telegram & Gazette newspaper a boy was watching television just a few feet from where the bus hit.
