A bus carrying a church group from Trinity United Methodist Church, in Denton, crashed Saturday, December 18th because of icy conditions of a Colorado Highway. The group was reportedly heading to the popular ski resort, Crested Butte. Only one passenger, an 11-year-old girl, was seriously injured but most of the other passengers were sent to the hospital.

The bus, which was operated by Fort Worth Company Gotta Go Express Trailways, was driving westbound when the driver lost control of the large vehicle and it flipped onto its side. According to State Troopers, "the highway was very icy, and there was snow."

The travelers from Trinity United Methodist Church ranged in age from 5 to 71 and 38 passengers were transported by school bus to Gunnison Valley Hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries. Gotta Go Express Trailways has only reported one other accident with an injury within the last two years and maintains a "satisfactory" rating by the U.S. department of Transportation.
