Bus overturns, killing at least 10

October 6, 2008


— Authorities say 10 people died and dozens were injured after a charter bus overturned in north-central California. The crash happened Sunday around 6:12 p.m. near Williams, which is about 60 miles north of Sacramento.

CHP dispatcher Terry Troth said the bus ran off the road and rolled over. No other vehicles appeared to be involved in the crash, he said.

Firefighters used flashlights to search the tall grass near the overturned bus, which lay in a ditch, Sunday night for more possible bodies.

Troth said the bus was headed to Colusa Casino Resort from Sacramento.
