LAKE LUZERNE — A teenage river guide was killed when a bus with 34 people aboard overturned en route to an excursion in the Adirondacks.

State police said the 15-year-old was thrown from the bus and died at the scene in Lake Luzerne around 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

They didn’t identify or provide further details about the victim. Another person was hospitalized with an ankle injury.

State police said the modified school bus may have had mechanical problems. An investigation is continuing.

No one answered the phone at bus owner Tubby Tubes Rafting Company’s offices.

A recording says all of the company’s activities are shut down Sunday “due to unforeseen circumstances.”
