An Interior Health officer has stated that the remaining hospitalized passengers from the B.C. bus crash are expected to survive.
Michaela Swan, a spokesperson for the health authority, said seven people who were brought to three hospitals after a passenger bus rolled on the Highway 97C, also called the Okanagan Connector, on Saturday evening are still patients, down from eight on Sunday.
All seven have non-life threatening issues, after two patients previously listed as having serious conditions improved, Swan said on Monday.
The crash on Christmas Eve happened shortly after 6 p.m., east of Merritt, near the Loon Lake exit as the bus made its way from Kelowna to Vancouver. Video from the scene showed the westbound bus on its side.
Four people were confirmed dead on Sunday by police.
Police confirmed the bus, driven by the company Ebus, rolled onto its passenger side and came to a stop in the eastbound lanes.
Ebus cancelled all B.C. trips following the bus rollover that sent more than 50 people to hospitals.
