ANTIGONISH, N.S. - Only one person remains in hospital after an intercity carrying six people broke through a bridge guardrail and crashed into a river in rural Nova Scotia on the weekend.
The bizarre crash near Monastery, N.S., happened Saturday night as the Acadian Lines coach travelled west on the Trans-Canada Highway through blowing snow.
The bus fell almost eight metres to the ice-choked Tracadie River, where it tipped on its side and was partially submerged.
Five of the six people aboard - including the driver - were taken to hospital.
A spokeswoman for St. Martha's Regional Hospital in Antigonish confirmed Monday that one other crash victim was released from the hospital.
The bus driver, who was involved in an eerily similar accident last year, suffered serious injuries.
