Colo. authorities investigate rafting bus accident

SALIDA, Colo. (AP) – Colorado parks and wildlife officials are investigating the rollover of a rafting bus that injured seven people.

Authorities say a bus owned by Vessels for Honor Rafting Co. rolled on its top on U.S. Highway 50 along the Arkansas River late Thursday afternoon. Seven people were taken a hospital in Canon City but the extent of their injuries isn’t known.

Parks and wildlife spokeswoman Deb Frazier said the agency is investigating because the accident occurred within the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area near Salida.

There were 38 people on the bus, which was pulling a trailer with rafts on it.
