Bus carrying Chinese tourists crashes in U.S.

GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say a bus carrying mostly Chinese tourists flipped on its side on a busy highway in Grand Teton National Park, and eight people were hospitalized.

Officials say 19 other people aboard were examined at a hospital and released after the crash Thursday.

The eight injured people were listed in good or fair condition at two medical centers in Wyoming and Idaho.

The crash occurred on U.S. 89 north of Colter Bay Village on Jackson Lake.

Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs says investigators believe the bus went off the pavement and flipped on its side when the driver overcorrected.

The driver was among those taken to a hospital. His condition wasn’t immediately known.

Skaggs says most of the passengers were from China.
