LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police in Las Vegas say the driver of an empty tour bus involved in a chain-reaction crash that injured 12 people admitted smoking synthetic marijuana before the wreck.

Police tell KLAS-TV they're investigating what role Spice, speed and rain may have played in the 5:30 p.m. Sunday crash involving the bus and at least five other vehicles near The Boulevard mall east of the Las Vegas Strip.

Twelve people were treated at nearby Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center for injuries that authorities described as minor.

Witnesses say the bus plowed into vehicles at a red light and then ran into a light pole.

Witnesses kept the driver at the scene until police arrived. He wasn't immediately identified.

Calls to the bus company, Herrera Coaches, went unanswered.
