WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Four people were killed in an early morning bus crash on Tuesday on Interstate 95 in Virginia's Caroline County, the Virginia State Police said.

There were multiple injuries as well, with those hurt taken to hospitals in Fredericksburg and Richmond, the VSP said in a statement that did not give a specific number for the injured.

"The bus ran off of the right side of the road and overturned -- coming to rest upside down on its roof," the statement said.

The bus was a commercial tour bus, and police were called to the scene at 4:55 a.m.

Northbound traffic on I-95 was being detoured but southbound traffic was not affected, police said.
