Two people died and 21 others were hurt Wednesday when a tour bus returning from an Iowa casino ran off Interstate 90 in southern Minnesota and rolled over in a ditch, authorities said. 

 

The bus, operated by Strain Bus Line Motorcoach Tours in Rochester, Minn., was eastbound just west of Austin about 3 p.m. when it crossed into the westbound lanes and flipped over…

 

Ambulances and helicopters responded to the accident, according to the Mayo Clinic.  Three of the injured were taken to Mayo Clinic; 11 were taken to Austin Medical Center and eight were admitted. Of six people brought to Albert Lea Medical Center, three were admitted, according to the Mayo Clinic.
