The Utah Highway Patrol says a bus carrying Japanese tourists veered into the median of a Utah interstate and rolled, killing three passengers.

Patrol spokesman Cameron Roden says several passengers were ejected from the bus, which was traveling from Las Vegas to Bryce Canyon National Park on Monday at about 7 p.m. when it crashed on Interstate 15.

Roden says at least two passengers were critically injured and flown to separate hospitals.

Victims hadn't been identified late Monday night.
