CHEBOYGAN, Mich. (AP) _ A tour bus returning from a weekend casino trip rolled over on a snowy road, injuring all 44 people aboard.

One person remained in serious condition this morning and 11 others were stable after the accident Sunday night, about eight miles west of of this northern Michigan town.

The bus was passing another vehicle when the driver lost control and the bus rolled over to the opposite side of the median, Cheboygan County Sheriff’s Deputy Jodi Beauchamp said.
