2 people killed in Quebec bus crash

PLESSISVILLE, Quebec (AP) – Quebec provincial police say two people were killed and about 20 injured after a charter bus went off the road northeast of Montreal.

Police spokesman Sgt. Claude Denis said Saturday that the bus was carrying 57 passengers, most of them elderly.

The bus, operated by Autocars La Chaudiere, was traveling from Thetford Mines, Quebec, to the United States.

Denis says it appears the bus missed a turn on a slippery road and flipped onto its side, slamming into a power line.

Investigators say no other vehicle was involved in the crash.

The accident occurred Saturday morning between Plessisville and St. Ferdinand, about 125 miles (200 kilometers) northeast of Montreal.

The injured passengers were taken to hospitals in Victoriaville and Thetford Mines.
