The bus was driving about 60 to 65 mph when it lost control after a tire burst and crashed into a Mitsubishi Outlander SUV and then into the middle of the highway shortly before noon. 11, said CHP Officer Jason Montez. There were 33 passengers on board traveling from Los Angeles to Phoenix.
Eleven bus passengers and two SUV passengers were injured and transported to a hospital for treatment. Most of the injuries were minor, but one person sustained a serious, non-life-threatening injury.
The unharmed passengers were transported to Morongo Tribal Hall in Cabazon, according to the CHP.
The accident took place in a construction zone, prompting CHP officials to remind drivers to slow down in those areas.
