13 hurt as tour bus crashes on California freeway



BALDWIN PARK, Calif. — A tour bus heading back from a Southern California casino crashed on a freeway east of Los Angeles early today, injuring 13 people, authorities said.
The bus went off the shoulder of an Interstate 10 off-ramp in Baldwin Park shortly after 4:30 a.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Christian Cracraft said.
The bus wheels went into a small drainage ditch and it came to rest against a fence and light pole but remain upright.
Eleven people had minor injuries and two received moderate injuries, the station reported, citing the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
KNX-Am reported that one person had a broken arm.
Nearly 40 people were on board the bus, which was returning from the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio. They were briefly trapped by a blocked door before rescuers freed them.
The freeway remained open.
