The Parks Highway may be closed temporarily as the Bureau of Highway Patrol investigates the crash of a tour bus that took the life of one this morning and also conducts total station scanning of the scene.
Troopers and EMS responded to a report of a rollover of a Princess Tours bus at mile 173 of the Parks Highway Friday morning at 8:03 am.
The driver of the bus, that contained himself and two passengers, reported injuries after the bus he was driving rolled over as he was traveling the highway.
But, when two troopers from Cantwell and first responders arrived on the scene, one of the passengers had succumbed to injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Commercial Vehicle Enforcement out of Palmer also arrived at the scene this morning to assist in the investigation of the crash.
