A bus carrying more than a dozen members of the Air Force Reserve was in a crash with a semi on Interstate 94 Thursday. 

The Minnesota State Patrol said the crash, which happened a little after noon near Albertville, caused the bus to roll over and left the truck in a ditch. 

I-94 was closed in both directions and a helicopter landed on the freeway to airlift one of the injured people to a hospital. The Patrol says the patient was conscious and no one suffered life threatening injuries.

The Air Force Reserve says six of the 13 people on the bus were injured, FOX 9 reports

A spokesman for the 934th Airlift Wing tells the Star Tribune it appeared that the semi rear-ended the bus, which was headed to a training site near Fargo. 

Dr. Anthony G. Jay tweeted a video of the scene as he drove by the aftermath of the crash. 

The 934th is based in the Twin Cities and is Minnesota's only Air Force Reserve unit. About 1,400 reservists from a five-state area are assigned to the Wing.
