There were 36 people on board.  According to KFSN-TV in Fresno, in a report on the safety of tour buses in November, The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration gave the busy company its worst rating for bus maintenance. Thereby putting it on alert status.  Paramedics  took 15 of the 36 people on board to area hospitals with minor injuries, including both drivers. The CHP says the others on the bus who were not injured were transferred to another bus to continue their trip.
