the bus fell off a switchback and rolled down the hill, sounds like the driver was going too fast
There is no switchback, road is straight & steep there. This is cut out of the side of a morraine – which has a lot of ice in it – subject to movement. The only reported cause so far was rockslide.
@BorealisLite how many times did the bus roll?
@Gas Mask sorry, don’t know. I know the place well but was not there that day.
Most likely the driver is a young kid from Australia. Every year the company that operates the Columbia Icefield hires mostly young foreign kids to work there for the summer season, many of those kids have never worked in their life, or no professional driving experience especially not with super large vehicle like the Ice Explorer bus.
Last year at the same place a regular tour bus killed its driver!
If that company wants to stay in business it better starts hiring mature Canadians with real professional bus driving experience, not just a bunch of wild kiddies from Australia.
the ice field was up to that highway in 1975
i tried to climb it ,
you could park the car on the side of the road get out walk 10ft and touch the glacier it had a small stream flowing from it
couldnt drink the water. the silt in the water would make your gut ache.
Question? Why would anyone be going on tours at a time like this?
Oh yeah that’s right. There is a big scary deadly virus where you don’t even realize that you have it the majority of the time lol.
they thought it was a cool idea … weapons of mass transit strike again
@J B so why so many restrictions on a not so deadly virus?
Cuz who wants to live in fear and stop living life? Not everyone
1984 that is why.
So if they had just gone on foot and not paid for a tour, they’d probably be alive. Hm.
There is hardly any ice anyway, it was better for them stay home and watch YouTube videos on COVID scamdemic, and collect CERB.
Once a blue moon. Move on, Canada. RIP
The moment when I realized, I’ve been to this glacier and rode the bus last year…..
5G up and operating in Kelowna BC. The mayor secretly made the town a test site.
I speak the truth. Telus is running the system.
Bad Grandpa GTFO with that conspiracy garbage.
We welcome China into our homes.
Waiting for comments blaming the liberals
I figured it was Trumps fault somehow
I came for the comments blaming covid. Maybe these tourists were not wearing masks?
Well who but a liberal would want to travel during a pandemic to see a big chunk of ice? Now they are cold cases
@MIke The Wood Worker Like you blaming Trump for everything lol
I’ve been on that bus, and I believe it was a rockslide
My condolence to the victims. Rest in peace, please!.
I’m waiting for the enviable ‘global warming’ excuse as the reason for this unfortunate accident from the peanut gallery. Tourists, especially those on a high end tour like this, never think that they are putting themselves in life-threatening situations … let’s hear about the extenuating circumstances.
Robert Coutts – My! You make it sound so complicated! Crashes happen! What that has to do w/”high end tour” and “putting themselves in danger” is a little much, don’t you think?!
Did the driver pass out from Covid-19 ?
Essene Gnostic . How long have they been operating over the last several months, weeks, days? 20 buses operating the spokesman said on another video. If they shut down for the CCP Virus that’s a lot of lost revenue!! If they’ve been running a long time through the Pandemic the. It’s possible right? But my guess is mechanical failure if the rock slide isn’t the cause, which is something I read last night.
Why go there during Coronavirus??? Just stay at home like everyone else…!!!!
Give it a rest!!! Had nothing to do with the virus…
Liberals blame Trump and ICE
Where are these tourists from? They better not be foreign tourists especially from plague land south of 49.
I guess mostly Canadians because international flights are very limited, and border with USA is closed. Anyone entering Canada must quarantine for 2 weeks.
These buses don’t have seat belts….it doesn’t look like they have roll cages or roll bars…they should.
I’m so sorry this happened. Prayers and condolences to the victims and families..
