The chase began in southern Wisconsin and ended on Interstate 94 near the Wadsworth exit, according to a news release from the Illinois State Police.

Officials chased the bus from Racine County into Lake County, Illinois. Once it finally stopped, another passenger says police had their weapons drawn on everyone. About 50 people on the bus were removed and eventually brought to Chicago, the Greyhound spokesperson said.

All lanes of I-94 were closed while several law enforcement agencies investigated the incident, WDJT reports, and the roadway was still closed as of 12:30 a.m. There have been no injuries reported.

Authorities have not confirmed any other specific details about what happened.

The pursuit started on Interstate 94 in Racine County, Wisconsin around 10:06 PM on Friday, January 12th and traveled south down the interstate into northern IL. There were also closures and backups in both directions of the interstate at the state line.
