1 killed, nearly 2 dozen hurt in bus crash


[trib_ndn vid=25462403]FALLBROOK, Calif. — One person was killed and about two dozen were injured when a tour bus lost control and overturned on Interstate 15 just south of Fallbrook, the California Highway Patrol reported Thursday.

The crash was reported at 2:32 p.m. on southbound I-15 south of state Route 76, the CHP reported. The transition ramp from Route 76 to southbound I-15 closed to traffic so emergency vehicles can use it as a staging area, according to the CHP.

Ambulances transported a total of 21 victims to hospitals – 12 victims were taken to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, six victims were sent to Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside and three to Fallbrook, according to a Palomar spokeswoman Bobette Brown.

Of the 12 people taken to Palomar Medical Center, nine were discharged while three were expected to stay overnight, but were no longer in the emergency department, Brown said.
