Sixteen patients are in critical condition while many others suffered only minor injuries, according to emergency crews.

The Department of Public Safety said the bus was traveling northbound on state Highway 161 when it drove onto the right side of the road for an “unexplained reason.” The bus then hit a rubber attenuator and traveled back across all lanes of the turnpike, onto the grassy median and up along the middle concrete barrier, flipping and sliding on its right side.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the bus was headed for Oklahoma and operated by Mansfield, Texas-based Cardinal Coach Line.
