Bighorn Bus Crash Injures Twenty

Burgess Junction, WY – At least 20 tourists were injured when a bus overturned during a snowstorm in the Bighorn Mountains Monday afternoon. Authorities say seven passengers suffered serious injuries. The Wyoming Highway Patrol says a half-inch of slush covered U-S Highway 14 when the westbound Sheridan to Cody bus crashed about 11 miles south of Burgess Junction. The injured were taken to a clinic in Basin while the more seriously injured passengers were hospitalized in Worland. Officers say the passengers spoke Dutch and had a translator with them.
