This accident remains under investigation.

This accident is the latest in a series of crashes involving tour bus crashes. Earlier this weeks, three bus accidents killed two people, and dozens others suffered serious injuries. Slippery roads have been cited as a main factor in these incidents.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) performed an initial investigation and determined that one of the fatal accidents was the result of a bus travelling at an unsafe speed based on the condition of the roadway.
A separate incident injured another 14 people near Riverside when the bus slid sideways and collided into a car travelling in the opposite direction.
