ECO bus falls into river during wreck in Edwards; extended highway closure in effect

Two people were injured when an Eagle County transit system bus collided with a work truck on Friday in Edwards.

The occupants of the work truck were transported to Vail Health with injuries. The extent of their injuries is not yet known, Kris Widlak, Eagle County’s communications director said.

The bus went over the embankment into the river and the pickup truck sustained serious damage, according to the Eagle River Fire Protection District.



The driver was the only person on the bus. There were no passengers, Widlak said. The driver was shaken up but uninjured.

Highway 6 will be under an extended closure at Squaw Creek Road due to Haz-Mat cleanup & vehicle recovery.
