One Dead, 30 Injured As Bus Headed From L.A. To Washington Flips Over In NorCal
One person is confirmed dead and at least 30 others injured when a tour bus that departed Los Angeles bound for Washington state flipped over in Northern California on Sunday morning.
The bus, which had 33 people on board at the time of the crash, was bound for Pasco, Washington and crashed at about 7:30 a.m. north of Redding on Interstate 5. California Highway Patrol officials tell KRCR that the bus drove off the road in an area named Pollard Flat and into a ditch, and rolled over onto its roof.
The injured were taken to the nearby Mercy Medical Center and Shasta Regional Hospital in Redding, and two had to be airlifted because of the severity of their injuries.
While the bus has two drivers, police believe that the one driving at the time of the crash may have been tired. Prior to this accident, the bus had crashed into the side of a Denny's in Red Bluff and caused minor damage.
The investigation into the crash is ongoing, and authorities are interviewing the driver behind the wheel at the time of the accident.
