GUNNISON, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a tour bus has crashed on an icy mountain highway in central Colorado and eight people are
injured, including two in serious condition.

The Colorado State Patrol says the accident occurred about 8:20 p.m. MST Saturday on Highway 114, about eight miles southeast of Gunnison.

Trooper Nate Reid tells The Associated Press that the bus operated by Gotta Go Express Trail Ways was carrying 46 people when it veered off a snowpacked roadway and rolled onto its side.

Eight people were hospitalized with injuries. Reid says two of them are in serious condition and the rest have moderate injuries. He says none of them are life-threatening.

The other 38 people aboard the bus were taken by a school bus to a Gunnison hospital to be checked out. Reid says some of them had bumps and bruises.

The bus was carrying a church group from Denton, Texas, to the town of Crested Butte.
