Icy roads a factor in Banff tour bus rollover that sent 24 people to hospital: RCMP – Global News

October 8th, 2019

RCMP say icy road conditions played a role in a tour bus crash in Banff on Tuesday that sent 24 people to hospital.

RCMP and EMS responded to a bus rollover at Compound Road, just off the Trans-Canada Highway east of the Mount Norquay exit, after 7:15 p.m.

Police said the bus was heading east, lost control and ended up in the south ditch.​

The bus was carrying 24 people, including the driver and guide, according to RCMP.

EMS initially said there were 10 people injured but that was later updated to 13.

Those 13 people were taken to hospital as a precaution: one to Calgary and the others to Canmore and Banff, according to EMS.

EMS said all others on the bus were taken by a private vehicle to area hospitals for assessments.

No one sustained serious injuries.​

While police said icy road conditions were a contributing factor, the collision’s cause is still under investigation.

RCMP reminded drivers to travel with caution in the area due to “poor visibility, icy roads and blowing snow.”
