RCMP released ages and hometowns of the three victims on Monday, but said police wouldn’t be releasing the names of the victims.
Of the 24 survivors, 14 had life-threatening head or pelvis injuries. Five others were in serious condition with broken bones and the remaining five suffered minor injuries.
On Monday, RCMP said only four people were still considered to be in critical but stable condition as of Sunday night. One person was in serious but stable condition.
Investigation into the cause of the crash remains underway. Some witnesses said a rockslide may have caused the off-road bus to roll, but according to the RCMP update on Monday, there was no evidence of one.
It may be several days before the vehicle is removed from the road, RCMP said, but Highway 93 remained open as of Monday afternoon.
