12 hurt when bus carrying Chinese teens crashes near Yosemite
The California Highway Patrol said 12 people were injured when a tour bus carrying Chinese teens struck a tree near Yosemite National Park and went down an embankment.
Sgt. Michael Schwab told KFSN-TV that two of the injured were flown to a hospital with head trauma after Saturday’s crash on Highway 41, south of Fish Camp.
Schwab said 22 people were on the bus, most of them 12- to 15-year-old Chinese students and their adult chaperones who were heading to their hotel in Fresno after visiting the park.
Schwab said the bus was operated by A Top Line Tours, based in Monterey Park.
A call to the company had not been returned.
