Another charter bus accident on a San Diego freeway has claimed lives, and this one was not far from our San Diego North County law office. Last week, an Executive Lines charter bus headed from El Monte to Tijuana crashed on the rain-slicked I-15 near Fallbrook. The accident killed three passengers and injured 18 others.
According to the CHP, the charter bus about to head uphill in a downpour when the driver lost control, causing the bus to veer of the road, overturn, and then roll down a steep embankment. The bus veered off the highway, overturned, and slid down an embankment before coming to rest along the hillside.
Several passengers were ejected from the charter bus. “Little by little I start remembering and getting flashbacks and I would only hear people screaming that were inside and the others were trapped,” one victim told Telemundo20.
