    Vermont State Police say a tour bus ended up on its side on a snow-covered Interstate 91, with most of the 14 people aboard suffering minor injuries.

    Police said the southbound bus was traveling too fast for the road conditions at about 5:40 p.m. Tuesday. It spun around before sliding into a median and partially overturned near Orleans. Witnesses said the bus had been passing other vehicles before the crash.

    None of the injured passengers required hospitalization.

    Police said the bus driver was given a ticket. They said additional violations are under consideration pending results of a vehicle inspection.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
