A fatal bus accident has occurred in the San Bernardino mountains according to the California Highway Patrol. The bus slid off an embankment on Highway 189 near Crest, Ca. and smashed into a large Cedar tree about 25 feet off the road. About two dozen people were injured and taken to hospitals at Loma Linda and Lake Arrowhead. From initial reports, it appears that the bus slid on an icy road and collided with another vehicle before going over the embankment. The roads were reportedly clear prior to the accident, but the area had received heavy snowfall over the weekend, and the weather was very cold.
