Two people have died in a Greyhound bus rollover in California.

Details about the Greyhound Rollover

According to NBC Bay Area News, two female passengers have been killed this Tuesday morning after a Greyhound bus carrying roughly 20 passengers flipped onto its side just south of San Jose.

Sergeant Lisa Brazil of the California Highway Patrol has said that two women died during the accident, which was reported shortly before 6:40 a.m. this morning on U.S. Highway 101 at state Route 85 – a busy thoroughfare that was jammed this morning in the rainy commute.

The bus driver as well as 8 other passengers were injured, although nothing major has been reported.

Witness of the accident that were driving behind the bus say that they saw the back end of the bus fly into the air after it veered into the carpool lane. Investigators do not currently know why the bus flipped onto its side, although some witnesses claim that the bus driver may have been asleep.

According to the bus tracker, the bus did leave Los Angeles a little after midnight and was headed for San Francisco. Greyhound Spokeswoman Lanesha Gipson apologized on behalf of Greyhound and did not elaborate on any further details about the accident.
