    He did not give the nationalities of the victims but said authorities were in contact with consular officials of Mexico, Japan and Australia and that most of the passengers were Hispanic. He said authorities have struggled to identify some of the passengers and contact their families, in part because some of them were not carrying "legitimate" or "valid" identification.
    Ricard Townsend, a trauma surgeon at Desert Regional Medical Center, said many of the victims spoke only Spanish.

    The Latest: Neighbor Says Bus Owner Was a Hard Worker
    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    DESERT HOT SPRINGS, Calif. — Oct 23, 2016, 8:21 PM ET

    The Latest on a deadly tour bus crash in Southern California (all times local):


    http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/l...ornia-43000633

    This from earlier today:

    2:50 p.m.

    “Authorities say a maintenance crew was working on a California highway and slowing down traffic when a tour bus plowed into the back of a semi-truck, killing 13 people.

    California Highway Patrol Border Division Chief Jim Abele says the cause of the accident isn't clear but that the bus carrying 44 passengers was going significantly faster than the truck when they crashed before dawn Sunday north of Palm Springs. An additional 31 people were injured.

    CHP officers had been slowing traffic to allow Southern California Edison workers to string wires across Interstate 10. Abele says the work had gone on for hours without problems.

    Abele says the bus was coming from Red Earth Casino in Thermal, California, and was about 35 miles into its 135-mile trip back to Los Angeles.”

    Good lord I would think from images that we are talking about a dead stopped semi and a full interstate speed bus - that is one heck of an impact.

    peeled and compressed the coach cabin off its undercarriage back, nearly half of the vehicle's length.

    30 to 31 people were taken by fleets of ambulances to three hospitals

    truck's trailer has heavy insulation, but it appeared to have been empty at the time of the crash.

    on the long uphill stretch into San Gorgonio Pass, next to several windmill farms.

    From your link, the truck was only going 5 mph.

    Authorities said the truck was going 5 mph when the bus plowed into it at a much faster speed on Interstate 10 just north of the desert resort town of Palm Springs. The collision crushed the front 15 feet of the bus.

    Authorities find no sign of braking by bus driver in crash--no skid marks were found.

    Investigators were trying to determine if the driver of a bus that crash and killed more than a dozen and injured dozens more near Palm Springs was in the casino with passengers beforehand

    The California Highway Patrol identified Vides as the owner and driver of the USA Holiday bus.

    many bodies were later found in the front portion of the bus that ended up inside the trailer.

    Those who could move were pushing and shoving in the pre-dawn darkness to climb out from under each other.She clambered to a broken window to yell for help, panicked she would be trapped if the bus caught fire. Motorists who stopped to help pulled her out the broken window.

    I sat on the side of the road, watching them pull so many people out. I saw so much blood and two dead bodies. I was so scared."

    valid commercial license and a clean record in recent years. (kinda hit me as odd phrasing)





    arrived at the casino between 11 and 11:30 p.m. on Saturday and the bus left at 4 a.m.

    deadliest wrecks in California history.The truck was creeping along at 5 mph because of utility work that had gone on throughout the night along Interstate 10 near Palm Springs. That's when the bus, moving as fast as 65 mph, slammed into it, authorities said.
    Vides, USA Holiday and bus driver Paulino Camacho Ceballos were sued--- crash with a car on the westbound 60 Freeway in Riverside on June 27, 2003, according to court documents.

    Vides was named in lawsuits stemming from three freeway collisions, though he was not the driver in any of the cases, according to court records.

    Court records indicated the lawsuit was settled,

    Four passengers remained hospitalized in critical condition

    Official: Tire treads on bus in deadly Palm Springs highway crash that killed 13 were worn down to unsafe levels, investigators say


    Sunday's crash on Interstate 10 near Palm Springs killed 13 and injured 31

    Authorities are working to determine the cause of the fatal crash

    A federal investigator said four faulty tires meant the 1996 bus was out of compliance with federal standards

    NTSB was expected to take about a year to complete its investigation
