TRIGG COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A tour bus crash closed a portion of US 68/KY 80 at Pete Light Hill in Trigg County, according to Keith Todd with Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

Todd says there were only two people on the bus, a driver and a relief driver, and they were taken to Trigg County Hospital. The bus is reportedly owned by Los Paisonos De Adane Bus Line.

The bus landed on a major water line so crews are being very careful not to damage the line as they remove the bus, according to Todd.

The crash is between Cadiz and Canton near the 13 mile marker.

The road opened back to traffic on Thursday afternoon.

The bus doesn't seem to be heavily damaged, according to Todd.
