Pocatello, Idaho • The Idaho State Police say a Salt Lake Express bus slid off Interstate 15 Sunday morning, sending three passengers to the hospital.

The company says the bus was traveling from Salt Lake City to Rexburg, Idaho.

Police say the bus was northbound when 30-year-old Elijah Hansen, of Provo, Utah, lost control in icy conditions about 1:10 a.m. and crossed the median into southbound lanes and then went off the shoulder of the southbound side.

Police say it's unclear how many passengers were on the bus. Three of them were taken by ground ambulance to Portneuf Medical Center in Pocatello.
