Bus Crash in Merced, California, Kills At Least 5
At least five people were killed and more than two dozen others were injured when a charter bus swerved into a support pole in Northern California early Tuesday.
The pole pierced the bus, trapping some of the injured in their seats for hours, the California Highway Patrol said. It happened around 3:35 a.m. in Merced, Highway Patrol spokesman Moises Onsurez said.
At least 30 people, all of Mexican descent, were on board, and only four escaped unscathed, the Highway Patrol said. Fifteen people suffered serious to critical injuries, while a dozen more sustained lesser injuries.
