At least 13 people are dead and 31 others are injured after a tour bus crashed into a semitrailer in California early Sunday.
"In almost 35 years, I've never been to a crash where there's been 13 confirmed fatal accidents. So it's tough. It's tough for all of us," California Highway Patrol Chief Jim Abele said at a press conference.
Police say the bus was returning to Los Angeles from a casino when it crashed on Interstate 10 near Palm Springs. The California Highway Patrol says it was carrying 43 passengers.
