California Highway Patrol spokesman Mario Lopez said at least eight have died from the Sunday night crash. He says 38 injured people were taken to hospitals.

Lopez says the bus driver reported having brake problems as it came down the mountain on State Route 38, rear-ending a sedan then flipping over and hitting a pickup truck that was pulling a trailer.

Department of Transportation spokeswoman Michelle Profant says the passengers on the bus were part of a tour group from Tijuana, Mexico, and a representative from the Mexican consulate was at the crash scene.
