Trooper Nate Reid says a bus operated by the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority was headed west on Colorado 82 just after 7 p.m. Saturday when the driver tried to avoid rear-ending a slow-moving tractor. The bus, which was carrying 12 passengers, skidded past the tractor and hit a concrete barrier before rolling onto its side.

Reid says three of the passengers were seriously injured, and eight suffered moderate injuries.
