California: Dozens Hurt As Casino Bus Overturns
More than 50 people have been injured after a coach carrying gamblers to Las Vegas overturned on a motorway in southern California.
The bus careered off a road north-east of Los Angeles and ended up on its side near railway tracks.
Six people were air-lifted to hospital, said Cheryl Sims from Los Angeles County Fire Department.
All lanes of the motorway were closed, causing major tailbacks in the area.
The cause of the accident is not yet known.
It is unclear how many people were on the bus, which is owned by Da Zhen Travel Agency in the LA suburb of Monterey Park.
The route is commonly used for "gamblers' specials" taking punters to desert casinos in and around Las Vegas.
