Yucaipa — A tour bus overturned on Sunday on a rural desert highway in Southern California, killing multiple people, a fire department spokesperson said.

County fire spokesperson Eric Sherwin said the bus overturned at about 18:30 on Sunday night near the town of Forest Falls, which is about 128km east of Los Angeles.

Sherwin said 27 patients have been treated at the scene, but it is not clear how many have been killed. He says the injuries range from minor to life-threatening.

The bus crashed on Highway 38. The San Bernardino Sun reported that at least seven ambulances were called to the scene, and numerous calls began flooding the California Highway Patrol and San Bernardino County fire dispatch lines soon after the crash.

Sherwin did not know where the bus was headed or coming from, but Highway 38 leads to Big Bear, a popular recreation area.

Television cameras showed the bus lying on its side on the highway.
