GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Officials say about two dozen people were taken to a hospital after a bus flipped on its side in Grand Teton National Park.

The crash occurred Thursday near Colter Bay Village on Jackson Lake.

Details were sketchy. KIFI-TV in Idaho Falls, Idaho, reports (http://tinyurl.com/lqt6p43 ) two people were airlifted to an Idaho Falls hospital and 24 were taken by ambulance to a hospital in Jackson, Wyoming.

Few details were available on the airlifted patients. Authorities say those taken to Jackson had non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities say no other vehicles were involved. It wasn't clear who owned the bus or whether it was on a tour.

The crash occurred on U.S. 89, which connects Grand Teton with Yellowstone National Park to the north. Part of the highway was closed but reopened Thursday night.
