    SEATTLE – Two tour buses have collided and one his hanging over Interstate 5.

    The accident happened near Denny Way in Seattle at about 12:30 p.m.

    “We were going down the hill and the hill was very icy and the driver tried to turn and we ran into the other bus and it knocked it … into the guardrails and the windows in our bus just shattered,” said Nicole Maxie, a passenger on one of the buses.

    “Everybody was just screaming, crying. Everybody had to climb out the emergency windows.”

    The Seattle Fire Department says there are no serious injuries.

    Video from the scene shows two buses, and that it appears one struck the other. One of the buses is hanging off the edge of a freeway wall which is several feet over I-5.

    Several people are seen gathered at a nearby building.

    Two right lanes of northbound I-5 are shut down.

    Maxie says the passengers were with Columbia Basin job corps, traveling from Moses Lake to Seattle to visit families. Most of those on board were between 15 and 24 years-old.

    I'd say I was glad I'm not in Seattle - but there's an AVERAGE of 23inches of snow where we are in Eastern WA, and we're pretty much snowed in here too.

    That's crazy scary though - at least I5 looks fairly clear....
