Greyhound bus rollover

McBride RCMP and the Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement Team continue to investigate a motor vehicle incident involving a Greyhound Bus late Saturday night.

McBride RCMP and Emergency Crews were called to a Motor Vehicle Incident on March 2nd, at approximately 11:45pm on Highway 16 East near Dome Creek.

A Greyhound Bus carrying 18 passengers was traveling eastbound when it lost control and skidded off the Highway, rolling onto its side down an embankment. Three passengers suffered minor injuries, two of which were taken to the McBride Hospital for medical attention. With the assistance of the Yellowhead Highway Road and Bridge work crew, the remaining passengers were taken to the Slim Creek Highway Work Yard while they waited for a second Greyhound Bus to continue their journey.

McBride RCMP and the Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement Team continue to investigate the roll over.  A mechanical inspection of the Greyhound Bus will be part of the ongoing investigation. 

Police advise that poor weather conditions may have played a factor as it was snowing heavily at the time of the incident.

RCMP are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact the McBride RCMP Detachment at (250) 569-2255
