Two injured after bus slides off Highway 20 near Quebec City

It was a close call for an Orleans Express bus travelling on Highway 20 near Quebec City on Sunday afternoon.

Surete du Quebec say two people have minor injuries after the bus slid off the highway and down a hill just before the overpass.

They say a strong gust of wind came suddenly and pushed the bus off its path.

The bus didn’t hit any trees or other vehicles; it just stopped on the hill. Police say as of late Sunday afternoon, it was still on the side of the road.

There were 17 passengers on the bus – the two injured were taken to hospital and the remaining 15 were taken to their destination by another bus.

Police say the driver is okay.

Orleans Express is a Quebec regional carrier, not based in the Ottawa community of Orleans.
