Bus crashes on Cabot Trail, causes injuries

Halifax -

A bus carrying 21 passengers has crashed on The Cabot Trail, three kilometers south of Neil’s Harbour.

The accident happened shortly before 2:30 Sunday afternoon.

RCMP confirm at least one person has been seriously injured in the crash. Nine others are believed to have suffered moderate injuries.

Police were unable to comment on the extent of injuries the other eleven people sustained.

According to officers, the bus driver lost control going around a turn.

EHS and Life flight are on route to the area. Additional doctors are being called in to The Neil’s Harbour Hospital to help assess those who were injured in the accident.

According to local tour bus operators, dozens of buses travel that route every day. Operators say buses from across North America and the US come to The Cabot Trail for tours.

Police tell Global News The Cabot Trail is closed until further notice while they investigate the crash.

Officers are now trying to find a tow truck operator that is able to move the bus and tow it away from the remote spot.
