A witness said some of the bus' wheels were off the ground while it was wedged between the boulders.

Colorado Springs police are working with the park to assess the damage. It isn't clear if the driver of the bus will face any charges or fines. Park officials say they don't expect the pass to be closed to the public following the incident.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department was also called to the scene. A tow truck was used to clear the crash.
