LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - Arkansas State Police say as many as six people were killed in an early morning charter bus crash along Interstate 40 in North Little Rock.

Multiple people with injuries have also been transported from the scene by ambulance.

Troopers received the reports about the single vehicle crash around 1 a.m. Friday. The bus was traveling westbound when it left the roadway and collided with an overpass abutment.

Westbound I-40 traffic near the crash was initially diverted through North Little Rock, but one westbound lane through the crash scene had been opened by 3 a.m.
