GUNNISON, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a tour bus has crashed on an icy central Colorado highway and eight people are seriously injured.
The Colorado State Patrol says the accident occurred about 8:20 p.m. MST Saturday on Highway 114 near Gunnison.
The patrol says the bus operated by Gotta Go Express Trail Ways was carrying 46 people when it veered off an icy snowpacked roadway and rolled onto its side.
Eight people were rushed by ambulance to a Gunnison hospital with serious injuries. The patrol says many of the other 38 people aboard had minor injuries and they were taken to the hospital by a school bus.
The tour bus was carrying a church group from Denton, Texas, to the town of Crested Butte.
No other details were immediately available.
