Six people were injured when an MBTA bus collided with a BMW on Interstate 93 south in Boston on Thursday morning.
Massachusetts State Police said they responded to a 2-vehicle crash in the HOV lane on the lower deck of I-93 south in Charlestown around 9 a.m.
Police said a 2016 BMW X6 coupe operated by a 41-year-old Everett woman attempted to enter the HOV lane by crossing over rubber rumble strips. The bus, which was already traveling in the HOV lane, struck the driver's side of the BMW.
