A driver's attempt to avoid a collision with a moose sent a Greyhound bus carrying 18 passengers into a swamp near Clearwater, B.C. early Wednesday morning.

The bus was travelling south on Highway 5 about 25 kilometres south of Clearwater when the driver veered to avoid a moose crossing the road. The bus struck and killed the moose before careening off the left side of the highway into about five feet of water.

One passenger suffered a broken bone in the crash and was taken to hospital by ambulance. Other passengers reported just minor injuries.

The highway was closed for a brief time, but has since been fully re-opened.
