California bus crash kills eight and injures dozens

At least eight people were killed Sunday night and more than 30 injured when a tour bus crashed on a narrow mountain road near Yucaipa. The collision, which involved the bus, a truck and a sedan, occurred about 6:30 p.m. on California 38 on a route leading from the Big Bear area, Los Angeles Times reports.

Some people were ejected from the bus; others were trapped inside. Because of the severity of the carnage, it was difficult for rescue workers to immediately identify exactly how many people were killed.

California Highway Patrol spokesman Mario Lopez said that all of the known fatalities appeared to come from the bus, which was a charter carrying 38 passengers, including children. The sedan was carrying three people, and the truck had one occupant, officials said.
