| No Comments

At least eight people were killed and 38 were injured after colliding with two other vehicles on a Southern California mountain road Sunday night, news sources report.
California Highway Patrol spokesman Mario Lopez said the tour bus rear-ended a sedan and then flipped over and collided with a pickup truck at about 6:30 pm (PST) , ABC News reported.
Firefighters worked for over two hours to extricate all of the injured passengers from the bus. Officials said over two dozen people were transported to area hospitals and at least six were in critical condition, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Department of Transportation spokeswoman Michelle Profant said the passengers were a tour group from Tijuana, Mexico, according to ABC News.
"It happened so fast, I don't know how it all happened," one passenger said to the San Bernardino Sun, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.
