DERRY, N.H. (AP) - Officials in New Hampshire say 59 vehicles, including three buses and two tractor-trailer rigs, have crashed on a snowy highway.

State Department of Transportation spokesman Bill Boynton said the crash happened Sunday morning on Interstate 93 at Derry, N.H.

Derry Fire Battalion Chief Jack Webb says the most common injuries were broken ankles and legs and none was life threatening.

WMUR-TV says witnesses reported that 1 of the vehicles was a chartered bus carrying a group of Boy Scouts from Massachusetts. The station says another bus was carrying the University of Massachusetts women's hockey team.
