TRAVER, Calif. (AP) — A bus ran off the highway in Central California and crashed into a fence Wednesday, injuring 15 people who suffered what were described as minor injuries, authorities said Wednesday.
The driver was among those hurt, said Officer Justin Montooth of the California Highway Patrol.
There were about 28 passengers on the Greyhound bus travelling from Fresno to Bakersfield.
The bus ran off the right shoulder of the road and hit the fence, Montooth said.
