Bus with gamblers flips in California, 10 dead

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bus traveling to a casino in northern California ran off a rural road and overturned, killing at least 10 people, the San Francisco Chronicle and other media reported on Monday.

The newspaper's on-line edition said police confirmed 10 passengers had died and more than 30 others were injured when the charter bus left the road and rolled over into a ditch about 60 miles north of Sacramento on Sunday night.

Local television stations showed the crashed bus in a muddy drainage ditch where it landed back on its wheels.

Rescuers had trouble communicating with the passengers because many spoke Lao, a California Highway Patrol officer told the newspaper.

The bus was travelling to a casino resort in the farming town of Colusa.

Talk about dicing with death!
