KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) — Mohave County authorities expect to release updated information Monday about last week’s tour bus crash that killed one person and injured dozens of others, including five seriously.
The Las Vegas-based bus rolled over Friday in northwestern Arizona while headed to a Grand Canyon viewpoint on the Hualapai Reservation.
The cause of the crash wasn’t immediately determined and no information was available about the vehicle’s speed before the crash.
County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Anita Mortensen said Sunday that a press release with updated information on the crash was expected to be released sometime Monday afternoon after she is briefed by investigators.
Kingman Regional Medical Center officials said three people who were seriously injured in the crash remain hospitalized while 40 others have been treated and released.
Two other seriously injured patients have been transferred to an unspecified Las Vegas hospital.
No identities have been released and it wasn’t immediately known whether the passengers were in a group.
The bus was heading to Grand Canyon West, about 2 ½ hours from Las Vegas and outside the boundaries of Grand Canyon National Park.
