El Paso-owned charter bus carrying 50 crashes in Colorado


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — An El Paso-owned charter bus carrying at least 50 people rolled over on a slick highway in southern Colorado early Thursday, injuring some of the passengers.

The Colorado State Patrol said there were no fatalities when the crash happened on Interstate 25 around sunrise Thursday morning about 4 miles south of Walsenburg, which is about 90 miles south of Colorado Springs.

Photos from the World Journal newspaper out of Walsenburg, Colo. shows the bus has the Los Paisanos company logo, which is based out of El Paso.

The patrol says the bus was traveling north when it rolled over into the median and landed upside down.

It was not immediately clear how many passengers were injured, but the patrol reported that none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.

The accident remains under investigation.
