GUNNISON, Colo., Dec. 19 (UPI) -- A church bus from Texas veered out of control on a snow-packed highway in Colorado Sunday, injuring eight people on board, police said.

The Colorado State Patrol said the bus came to rest after rolling on its side along Highway 114 west of Gunnison.

The injured include an 11-year-old girl in serious condition, Colorado Springs' KOAA-TV reported. The others sustained minor injuries.

The bus was carrying 46 members of the Trinity United Methodist Church congregation, ages 5-71, from Denton, Texas. The group was on its way to Crested Butte on a Gotta Go Express Trail Ways bus driven by Fred Korenegay, 47, the TV station said.
