Emergency Personnel Responded Swiftly

Three more people were discovered with critical injuries, and the bus rollover killed one person, who was declared dead on-site. Additional people suffered moderate to minor injuries.

Emergency personnel stabilized patients on the scene until additional ambulances arrived. They provided advanced life support and saved many lives. Four helicopters were deployed for the transport of patients.

The Bus Rollover Killed One Person

While many were found to have minor injuries or moderate injuries, unfortunately, one person was declared dead on the scene.

What Caused the Accident South of Baker, Resulting in 1 Dead and 11 Injured?

The California Highway Patrol stated that the incident that affected multiple people was still under investigation. One of the most common causes of bus rollover accidents is speeding. When a large vehicle hits an object while traveling at high speed, this is a common occurrence.

It causes a mechanical problem that leads to the driver losing control of the vehicle, such as a tire blowout before the bus rolls and flinging people around the bus. Sometimes multiple people ejected from the bus could cause serious injuries.
