LOS ANGELES – A man was killed and a least 30 people were injured after a tour bus crashed in Northern California Sunday, according to California Highway Patrol.

The bus traveling from Los Angeles was headed to Washington State before it drove off Interstate 5 and down an embankment in Pollard Flat, about 20 miles north of Redding, around 7:40 a.m., KHSL reported.

An unidentified 33-year-old man died in the crash, according to KHSL.

Twenty-eight passengers were taken to hospitals, including two who were listed in critical condition, the Los Angeles Times reported. Nine patients were in serious condition.

The bus was operated by a company called Yellow Arrow, which did not have a safety record, the Record Searchlight reported.

CHP officials told the Redding-based paper that the bus had been involved in a second crash earlier in the day in Red Bluff, which is roughly 60 miles away from Pollard Flat, according to Google Maps.

Investigators were looking into whether driver fatigue had played a role in the incidents, according to the times.
