HARTFORD, Connecticut — Nine passengers on a commuter bus that was involved in an accident have been hospitalized, with four passengers taken to Hartford Hospital's emergency room.

No details were immediately available about the accident or the passengers' conditions Tuesday morning. Icy rain made roads slick and dangerous across Connecticut.

A spokesman for an ambulance service that responded to the commuter bus accident said highway cameras appeared to show a spinout.

Several other accidents involving tractor-trailers were reported Tuesday morning.

Conditions improved as temperatures rose midmorning and rain replaced sleet.

Heavy rain totals could reach 1 to 2 inches.
