Four inmates taken to hospital after bus clips semi

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee County Sheriff's deputies responded to an incident on I-43 at Holt Avenue Thursday, just before noon, in which a G4S Secure Solutions inmate transport bus clipped the right rear corner of a semi.

Officials say the bus driver was attempting to change lanes to avoid a disabled vehicle. The semi continued traveling, apparently unaware that the vehicles had made contact.

The G4S bus was transporting 22 inmates from the County Correctional Facility-South for court appearances downtown. The inmates complained of injuries and the Milwaukee Fire Department determined that four inmates would be transported to Froedtert Hospital for back and neck pain.

The remaining inmates were to be examined by jail nurses.
