At least five dead in multi-vehicle Connecticut wreck

At least five people are dead after a fiery accident this morning near Hartford, Connecticut. More than a dozen other people were hurt in the crash that involved about a dozen vehicles -- including a commuter bus.

An official says a dump-truck collided with the bus -- starting a chain-reaction and sparking a fire that engulfed several vehicles. A spokesman for the state Department of Transportation says at least five people are dead.

At least 13 others were sent to area hospitals -- several by helicopter, with serious injuries.
