COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A critically injured Swiss man has died a day after a bus carrying tourists crashed in Norway, raising the death toll to four people.

Hospital spokesman Svein H. Karlsen says the 49-year-old man died Wednesday. A 56-year-old woman and two men, aged 72 and 78, died at the scene in Tuesday's crash.

The German driver, who was slightly injured, has been questioned by police.

The tourist bus from Switzerland was carrying 16 passengers, mainly elderly Swiss citizens. It veered off a narrow two-lane road in central Norway and ended up in a ditch. The cause of the crash was under investigation.
