One dead, 17 hurt in tour bus crash

One man is dead and 17 people injured after a tour bus heading back to San Francisco was involved in a crash with four other vehicles in a rural area of Amador County.

A California Highway Patrol spokesman says the bus was involved in a head-on crash with a pickup truck when the pickup crossed the center line in Highway 88 in Amador County, just east of the San Joaquin County boder around 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

The driver of the pickup truck died in the crash. His name has not been released, but the CHP says he is a 75-year-old Stockton man.

After the crash, the bus rolled over on its side, temporarily trapping some passengers.

Three other cars ran off the highway trying to avoid the crash.

The CHP says four people sustained major injuries and were airlifted to the University of California, Davis Medical Center.

Thirteen more people sustained minor to moderate injuries and were transported by ambulance to several area hospitals.
