California tour bus crash kills 13, injures 31
Tragedy struck at the Southern California highway when a tour bus crashed into the back of a tractor-trailer before dawn on Sunday killing 13 people and injuring another 31 victims in the process.
According to California Highway Patrol (CHP) Chief Jim Abele, the bus was travelling west on Interstate 10 when the crash occurred near Palm Springs, a city about 100 miles (160 km) east of Los Angeles.
Abele said because of the bus’ speed, the truck’s trailer pushed about 15 feet into the bus. The bus driver was among the 13 killed, he said. Abele said he believed the 31 injured passengers had minor to moderate injuries, but some could be worse.
“In almost 35 years I’ve never been to a crash where there’s been 13 confirmed deaths”, Abele said. “So it’s tough. It’s tough for all of us.”
