BLYTHE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say all passengers have been removed from a bus that crashed in California, killing four people and seriously injuring seven others on Interstate 10 near the Arizona border.

California Highway Patrol Officer Jason Gerard said Wednesday that seven seriously hurt passengers were taken to hospitals, and 14 others sought evaluation of minor injuries such as bumps and bruises.

The crash occurred around 2:15 a.m. when a tractor-trailer spilled its load of steel pipes into all lanes west of Blythe.

The bus, with 32 confirmed passengers, was traveling from El Paso, Texas, to Los Angeles. The remaining passengers were taken into Blythe to be interviewed by investigators.

All lanes of the interstate remain closed.
