FALLBROOK, Calif. (AP) - Three bus crashes in rainy Southern California have killed one person and injured dozens of others.
The California Highway Patrol says a tour bus coming from the Pala Casino Spa & Resort in San Diego County overturned Thursday afternoon on southbound Interstate 15 near Fallbrook.
CHP Officer Robert Catano says one person died and at least 22 were hurt.
At almost the same time, 30 people suffered minor to moderate injuries when another tour bus returning from the casino overturned in the freeway's northbound lanes about 50 miles away in the Riverside County area of Corona.
Another crash Thursday morning in Riverside County involving a county transit bus left 21 people with minor to moderate injuries on state Route 74 near Perris.
