At least 13 people are dead and dozens were injured Sunday morning after a tour bus and a tractor-trailer collided on the 10 Freeway near Palm Springs.
EMS are searching for more victims in the mangled tour bus. Photos from the scene show the bus and truck nearly completely destroyed by the severe impact.
All westbound lanes of the highway are closed and traffic is being diverted, according to the California Highway Patrol. Reports say at least 21 victims have been taken to Palm Springs-area hospitals. Photos show the front of the passenger bus pushed into the semi-truck’s trailer. CHP said “the intrusion into the bus compartment is significant.” Firefighters were using ladders into the bus’ windows to pull out victims. h/t abc7
