Canadian tour bus rollover

Officials say a Canadian tour bus carrying more than 50 people has rolled over in New York, killing one and injuring others.

State police spokeswoman Darcy Wells says the bus rolled over Friday morning on an interstate highway known as the Adirondack Northway. She had no information on the number or extent of the injuries.

The tour operator says the bus was travelling from Quebec City to New York City. Josiane Grimard of JaimonVoyage.com says the bus crashed at 7:30 a.m. (1130 GMT). She had no word on the cause. She said the vehicle was owned by a subcontractor.

A number of local rescue squads have been sent to the scene, where the bus is on its side in the median.

North Hudson is north of Albany.
