Gillette WY (AP) - Troopers investigating an accident where a bus crashed into a car, triggering an eight-vehicle pileup that killed three people, say the bus may have been on cruise control when the accident occurred.
Authorities say three men from Gillette were killed in the crash. They were identified as Colin Schultz, 37, Christopher Joubert, 40, and Charles Errington, 55.
According to the Gillette News Record, three other people were injured in the crash on Wednesday on Wyoming Highway 59 about 10 miles south of Gillette in a construction zone.
The bus was carrying about a dozen coal-mine workers. The Wyoming Highway Patrol says no one on the bus required hospital treatment.
The accident is still under investigation.
