Canadian tour bus rolls over in NY; 1 dead

NORTH HUDSON, N.Y. (AP) — A Canadian tour bus carrying 56 people rolled over Friday in upstate New York, killing one person and injuring others, police said. The bus traveling from Quebec City to New York City for a three-day tour rolled over at about 7:30 a.m. on Interstate 87, also known as the Adirondack Northway, according to Josiane Grimard of JaimonVoyage.com, the tour operator. State police said several people were being treated at hospitals for mostly minor injuries. One person was airlifted from the scene. Grimard had no word on the cause. She said the vehicle used for the tour was owned by a subcontractor, Fleur de Lys. The subcontractor did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Multiple local rescue squads responded to the scene 90 miles north of Albany, where the bus was on its side in the median. Essex County Emergency Services Director Don Jaquish told the Adirondack Daily Enterprise that several people trapped inside the bus had to be removed by emergency personnel. "I'm sure a lot of them crawled through the top hatches because the bus was on its side," he said. Jaquish said the bus was filled with college-age students and their relatives. Grimard said it was not a college-sponsored tour.
