    Eight people were hurt in an early morning accident Tuesday between a tour bus and a tractor-trailer in a suburb north of New York City.   

    State police say the driver of the Trailways bus and seven passengers were taken to hospitals around Rockland County.      

    Police say the bus driver was trapped in the cab of the bus. He suffered leg and pelvic injuries, but is expected to survive. The passengers' injuries were minor.

    Police say the 5:35 a.m. accident occurred when the bus rear-ended the truck on the New York Thruway near the Ramapo service area, about 35 miles north of New York City. Both were traveling southbound.     

    The remaining 11 passengers were placed on another bus headed for New York City.      

    Trailways didn't immediately respond to calls for comment. 

    Southbound traffic delays continued into rush hour.
