Bus rolls over on US highway; at least 17 hurt

Authorities say a bus carrying Korean tourists heading from Canada to New Jersey rolled over in New Hampshire after the driver lost control, and at least 17 people were injured.
Firefighters say none of the injuries was life-threatening in the accident Monday night in Littleton, near the Vermont border. Fire chief Joe Mercieri says the passengers were Korean citizens touring the U.S. and Canada. The bus had 25 people aboard.
Light snow had fallen in the area, bringing with it intermittent fog.
A representative of the bus operator, Big Boy Coach Inc. of Flushing, New York, says he was on his way to the site to pick up the passengers late Monday. He says police told him that most of the passengers who had been taken to hospitals were expected to be released soon.
