GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Three people injured when a tourist bus flipped on its side in Grand Teton National Park remain in the hospital.

Two people are being treated at the Eastern Idaho Medical Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho, where they were listed in fair condition Saturday. Another person remains at St. John's Medical Center in Jackson, Wyoming, in good condition.

The bus was carrying 26 Asian tourists and a driver when the accident occurred about 4:10 p.m. Thursday. The bus was traveling north on U.S. 89 to Yellowstone National Park, according to the National Park Service.

Authorities believe the 33-foot-long bus went off the pavement and the driver overcorrected, causing the bus to flip on its side and slide.

All 27 bus occupants were taken to the hospital.

The accident remains under investigation.
