SALT LAKE CITY — A bus carrying elderly sightseers on a fall foliage tour overturned on a remote forest road Wednesday, killing six and injuring 20, the Utah Highway Patrol said.

The bus' brakes apparently failed as the vehicle turned a corner in Juab County, about 70 miles south of Salt Lake City, said Highway Patrol spokesman Chris Kramer.

Kramer said five women were confirmed dead and an additional 20 passengers injured, some of them seriously.
