There were no passengers on the bus except for the driver, who was able to exit the bus safely. The driver was able to safely pull into the shoulder before the bus caught fire.

Some fuel leaked onto the roadway, which lead to a partial road closure. Westbound traffic is being diverted at Hualapai. Nevada State Police anticipate the closure to be in place for approximately 2 hours.
