Authorities say a bus carrying Asian tourists flipped on its side on a busy highway in Grand Teton National Park, and eight people were hospitalized.

Officials say the other 19 people aboard were taken to a hospital and released after Thursday's crash.

Two of the hospitalized victims were in fair condition, and the others had non-life-threatening injuries. No other details were available.

The crash occurred on U.S. 89 north of Colter Bay Village on Jackson Lake. Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs says investigators believe the bus went off the pavement and flipped on its side when the driver overcorrected.

The driver was among those taken to a hospital. His condition wasn't immediately known.

Skaggs says the passengers were from one or more Asian nations, but she didn't have specifics.
