As many as a dozen people were taken to hospital after a Greyhound bus carrying 18 passengers veered off Highway 5 and into a swamp south of Clearwater, B.C. early Wednesday morning.


RCMP say the driver of the bus was trying to avoid a moose, but it's not yet confirmed if the animal was hit.


No critical injuries were reported but as many as three passengers are being treated in hospital in Clearwater for serious injuries, which may include broken limbs, and as many as eight others are being treated for minor injuries, said Cpl. Chris Newal from Clearwater RCMP.


The accident happened at around 4:30 a.m. about 25 km south of Clearwater.


After hitting the water, the bus remained upright in about five feet of water.


The bus - number 1132 - was enroute to Kamloops from Edmonton.


Greyhound dispatched a second bus to the hospital to pick up passengers still able to continue on to Kamloops, said Greyhound spokeswoman, Maureen Richmond.


The highway was closed temporarily but is now re-opened.

Of course, if this happened on Megabus then this story would've already been posted.
