LAPORTE COUNTY INDIANA (WKZO) -- A Royal Excursion bus driver headed for the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo is being credited with minimizing the injuries to the 50 passengers on board his bus, after a pick-up truck slid out of control on snow covered U.S. 20 in Northern Indiana and hit the bus head on.

La Porte County Deputies say the bus driver managed to keep his crippled bus upright, driving it between two trees and eventually getting it to stop in a field.

15-passengers were injured and the truck driver was killed.
