Bus Accident in San Diego County Caused Injuries to Passengers

Posted on September 6, 2013

The driver and nine passengers of a tour bus on its way to a casino in northern San Diego County were taken to a local hospital Sunday night after the bus careened off the road and crashed into trees on the side of the highway, the California Highway Patrol said.

The accident occurred as the 1996 year bus was traveling from Los Angeles to the Casino Pauma with 18 passengers in tow, according to the CHP.

The driver and passengers were taken to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido with “various complaints of pain.” The most serious injury appeared to be a cut to the head. The other injuries seem to be whiplash and soreness.

The driver said the bus suffered brake failure on Pala Temecula Road near Aruba Road about 10:49 p.m., which the CHP reported. The bus was unable to stop while entering a curve and instead smashed into a guard rail and then collided with trees and a boulder on the right side of the road.

The passengers were from the Los Angeles area. The driver is a 58-year-old resident of El Monte. He has been driving buses for years.

The incident remains under investigation by authorities as the victims are treated and released from local area hospitals. Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be involved at this time. The CHP is unsure if speeding was a factor in the crash that was mostly fueled by the lack of braking ability that the bus experience right before it hit the trees on the side of the road. The age of the bus might be a reason that the brakes failed when the accident occurred.

The victims of the crash are lucky to have survived without much incident or injuries to report.
