(WHAS11) – More than 50 people were taken to the hospital after a tour bus crash in northern Virginia Monday morning.

State police say they were headed to Georgia from New York when it flipped over on slick roads.

The crash caused a miles-long backup on the interstate about one hour north of Richmond, Virginia.

4 people suffered serious injuries.

A passenger on the bus says she noticed the driver going fast on the icy roads.

When the bus flipped, she landed on some of her fellow passengers.

“I couldn’t feel anything and when I looked down there was people under me, so if I let go, I would land on their head,” the passenger said.

Police say speed was a factor in the crash.

The bus driver was arrested and charged with reckless driving.

As for the passengers, the bus company has made arrangements to get them to their final destinations.
