New York State Police say one person was killed and multiple people were injured when a tour bus carrying 23 people rolled over Friday on Interstate 87 in the southern Adirondacks.

The crash occurred just before 1 p.m. on the Adirondack Northway in the town of Lake George. One passenger suffered serious injuries. Ten passengers have non-life-threatening injuries. The Skyway Coach Line tour bus was traveling from Montreal, Canada.

The Northway southbound is closed between Exit 23 in Warrensburg and Exit 22 in Lake George. Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes. Anyone who witnessed the crash or the bus beforehand is asked to contact authorities.

“I join the people of New York in praying for the well-being of all involved in this horrific incident and am deeply grateful for the heroic efforts of our first responders,” Governor Kathy Hochul said in a release.
