Princess Cruises tour bus in Alaska collision
A Princess Cruises tour bus was involved in a collision with a truck Monday afternoon on Parks Highway near Cantwell.
KTUU reports the cruise company says the bus was traveling from Mt. McKinley Princess Lodge to Denali when it was rear-ended by a semi-truck with a double tractor trailer.
Alaska State Troopers report the truck driver was flown to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
Princess spokesman Bruce Bustamente says there were 44 passengers on the bus and 10 were injured, but the injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. They were taken to a hospital.
Troopers say the bus had stopped at an Alaska Railroad crossing, but the truck did not stop.
