At least 8 people are dead after a tour bus collided with a car and pickup truck on a southern California highway Sunday night, the Associated Press reported.
A spokesman for the state's highway patrol said 38 people were hospitalized with injuries.
From the AP:
The bus was carrying a tour group from Tijuana, Mexico, and a representative from the Mexican consulate was at the grim crash scene, California Department of Transportation spokeswoman Michelle Profant said.
"It's really a mess up there with body parts," Profant said.
Rescuers were still searching the wreckage for victims hours later. Television footage showed the bus sitting upright but turned sideways on the road.
