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.
