BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- State police say a bus carrying nearly 50 passengers bound for Salt Lake City crashed in Idaho.

Police say 53-year-old Miguelito Sakay, of Reno, Nev., was driving a Greyhound bus on Interstate 84 around midnight when the driver of a Ford Ranger lost control and the pickup rolled into the middle of the road.

The 19-year-old driver of the pickup, Junior A. Martinez of Norwalk, Calif., was listed in serious condition at a Boise hospital early Thursday. His passenger, 21-year-old Jake Perez of Idaho, was treated and released.

Police say four bus passengers were taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.
