FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- California Highway Patrol is conducting traffic control after a tour bus went off an embankment on Highway 41 due to icy roads.

Authorities say it happened on the highway near Kane Ranch Road and Tenaya Lodge.

19 passengers from Poland were on board the bus, officials said. No injuries were reported and all passengers were taken to a hotel.

Officers said the passengers did not want to continue with the driver.
