LITTLETON, N.H. – Investigators interviewed the driver of a bus that overturned in the median of a slick New Hampshire highway, injuring 23, and authorities said they haven’t ruled out criminal charges.

The bus was carrying about two dozen Koreans from Quebec to Boston when the driver lost control on Interstate 93 in Littleton around 8:15 p.m. Monday. A light snow had fallen, bringing with it intermittent fog.

The bus accident was the third in the Northeast this month, including a crash in New York City in which 15 people were killed.

The driver in Monday’s crash was interviewed, Lt. Todd Landry of the New Hampshire State Police said. “Charges have not been ruled out,” he said.

Landry said the driver’s history was being looked at, “but it would be premature for me to say anything about it.” The driver had suffered a minor injury in the accident and was released from a hospital Monday night.

Police said five passengers were seriously injured and were taken to Littleton Regional Hospital. Debra Lynaugh, an administrative assistant for community relations at the hospital, said that two of them were transferred to another hospital, one was still at the hospital in stable condition and two were released Monday night.
