At least four people remain in critical condition after a charter bus rolled over Feb. 9 on I-95 north in Madison, Conn.

While various sources are providing different numbers, FOX 61 reports the crash injured nearly two dozen of the 55 people who were on the bus heading from Flushing in Queens, New York to Mohegan Sun Casino. Thirty were able to walk off, but the rest were transported to area hospitals.

Connecticut State Police trooper, Kelly Grant, says that while the accident is still under investigation, it likely occured due to snowy conditions.

    I was south bound out of Boston on that road a short while before this incident, there was about 2-3 inches of slush with a light snow falling, the plow/salt trucks were out in force all the way to the NY state line. I counted two more accidents along the route.
