LITCHFIELD, Illinois -

A double-decker Megabus has crashed into a concrete bridge pillar along Interstate 55 in southern Illinois.

There was no immediate word of injuries in the Thursday afternoon wreck. Television footage from the scene shows numerous emergency vehicles surrounding the bus and crews on ladders reaching inside the smashed front end of the bus. The crash near Litchfield, about 55 miles northeast of St. Louis, shut down the interstate in both directions.

The bus was traveling from Chicago to St. Louis, the company confirmed.
