FRASER, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities say a charter bus filled with more than three dozen members of a Littleton church rolled off a snowpacked roadway west of Fraser, but the few reported injuries were minor.

The Colorado State Patrol says the bus went off the side of Grand County Road 50 and came to a rest on its side in a snow drift Friday. The bus was taking 39 people from the Foothills Bible Church to the Crooked Creek Young Life Ranch near Fraser.

The 75-year-old driver was cited for careless driving causing injury.

Investigators say neither drugs nor alcohol played a role in the crash.
