CHP Cites Unsafe Lane Change in Bus Crash Near Los Angeles

The California Highway Patrol says the driver of a tour bus carrying gamblers to an Indian casino east of Los Angeles made an unsafe lane change, causing a crash that injured more than 50 people on board.
    
The bus struck a car to its left, overcorrected to the right, and ultimately went through a chain-link fence off the side of Interstate 210 around 10 a.m. Thursday.
    
The bus came to rest on its side down a dirt embankment between the freeway and railroad tracks in Irwindale, about 20 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
    
Fifty-two people, mostly senior citizens, were hurt in the rollover with minor injuries.
    
The CHP says that at least one passenger reported wearing a seatbelt, which might help account for the lack of life-threatening injuries.
