On Monday, February 27th, 2017 an A&F Bus Tours Inc. tour bus crashed on State Route 58 near Kramer about 100 miles north of Los Angeles. The bus hit two other cars. One of which carried an occupant that was killed in the crash. Nine people suffered life threatening injuries and 17 others were taken to nearby hospitals with non life threatening injuries.
“If we can’t get the helicopters there safely, we’re gonna offer ground ambulances. Ground ambulances provide excellent treatment, it just takes longer to get people to the hospitals,” said Eric Sherwin, a San Bernardino County Fire spokesman.
The tour bus, owned by Arcadia, California-based A&F Tours Inc., holds about 30 passengers. The tour bus company did not respond to a message seeking comment.
