Reports from the California Highway Patrol indicate the bus flipped and then rolled (cartwheeled) into a ditch on its way to a remote casino. Early reports indicate that at least ten people are dead and at least 38 are critically injured. The driver of the bus was actually walking around following the accident but did sustain a serious injury. He is listed in critical condition at an area hospital.

According the CHP, the bus is an older model, had no valid license plate and no seat belts.

The investigation into the cause of the accident is pending; the driver, according to reports, was on some type of medication.
