They were taken for treatment to a hospital in the near-by town of Epinal. The remaining passengers were given shelter in a community hall in Vincey.
Most of the passengers aboard the bus were Belgian or French youngsters that live in Brussels. They had left our capital on Friday night bound for a holiday at the Gérardmer ski station.
The bus left the road and tipped over onto its left side. French police sources told journalists that it could have been much worse. An investigation has been launched into the accident.
Some sources say that the bus skidded on black ice, while others claim that the driver swerved to avoid hitting an animal.
