Princess Cruises tour bus in Alaska collision

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — 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.
