LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — Two adults died and three children were injured when a school bus converted into a camper rolled off Pingree Park Road in Larimer County Tuesday night, Colorado State Patrol (CSP) confirmed.

CSP Master Trooper Gary Cutler said the driver died at the scene, and so did one passenger.

They were identified as a 47-year-old man out of Greeley and 34-year-old woman out of Loveland.

A 1-year-old girl with life-threatening injuries was flown to Children's Hospital Colorado. A 7-year-old boy and 3-year-old boy were taken to nearby hospitals by ambulance with moderate injuries.

There's no indication yet how everyone in the bus was related, Cutler said.

Authorities were called to the single-vehicle rollover crash around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Larimer County Sheriff's Office.

Several agencies, including Poudre Fire Authority, Larimer County Search and Rescue, CSP, and UCHealth responded, the sheriff's office said.

They learned the bus drifted off off Pingree Park Road and all the occupants were ejected in the crash, Cutler said.

CSP said it does not suspect alcohol and drugs were involved, or speeding.

Poudre Canyon Road between Pingree Road and Narrows has opened.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
