Bus overturns in northern California, killing 10
A charter bus traveling to a casino overturned in north-central California on Sunday, killing 10 people and injuring several others.
California Highway Patrol officials said the crash happened around 6:10 p.m. on a rural road near the town of Williams — about 60 miles north of Sacramento — as the bus headed to Colusa Casino Resort from Sacramento.
California Highway Patrol Commander Fran Clader said Sunday night that 10 people were dead and estimated that 20 to 30 others were injured.
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.
Troth did not know the extent of the injuries, but he said the victims were being transported to several area hospitals, including Colusa Regional Medical Center and Enloe Medical Center in Chico.

With his driving record this man should never have been driving a bus with people on it. Even his parents thought so. This was his first time to actually drive the bus on his own. He had been a truck driver who was unable to get a job driving a truck. He had even lost his license for a couple of years. Then they put him driving a bus with a lot of people!
I forgot to give the link.
