A tour bus crashed into the back of a truck in Palm Springs, California, Sunday, killing 13 passengers and injuring at least 31 others, officials said.

.

The California Highway Patrol responded a vehicle collision on Interstate 10 shortly after 5 a.m. (8 a.m. ET) and arrived to find the passenger bus blocking all four lanes of traffic. Police said rescue crews worked quickly to pull survivors out through bus windows.

.

At least 30 passengers were taken to area hospitals, according to officials, who confirmed that five were in critical condition, and three were listed as serious. The rest had “minor” injuries.

.

The CHP said the truck’s driver also sustained minor injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

.

The bus was en route to Los Angeles from the Red Earth Casino in Salton City, when the accident occurred.

Nearly a dozen people were killed and 30 others were injured Sunday morning when a tour bus collided with a big-rig truck on the Interstate 10 near Palm Springs, according to officials and published reports.

.

A California Highway Patrol official confirmed the crash but could not immediately provide more details.

.

The Desert Sun reported that 11 people were killed. Hospital officials confirmed that 30 people were transported to three local hospitals.

.

Late Sunday morning, bodies were covered with blankets on the side of the freeway. The front of the tour bus was crumpled inward and completely destroyed, as was the back of the truck trailer.

.

More than three dozen people were on the bus, which may have been returning from the Red Earth Casino near the Salton Sea, the Desert Sun reported.

.

Shortly after the wreck, which was reported after 6 a.m., firefighters used ladders to climb into the back of the bus to search for passengers and victims.

.

Desert Regional Medical Center, which has the Coachella Valleys only trauma center, received 14 adult patients, including five who were in critical condition, said public information officer Richard Ramhoff.

.

Eisenhower Medical Center received 11 adult patients, all with minor injuries, said public information officer Lee Rice.

.

John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital received five adult patients with minor injuries, including neck strain and cuts and abrasions, said nursing supervisor Stephen Williams.

.

The bus was operated by USA Holiday, an Alhambra-based company that owns one bus and employs one driver, according to federal records.

.

A woman who answered the phone at USA Holiday told The Times that she was the daughter of the companys owners. She said she did not know how many people had been killed or whether the driver survived.

What we know about the bus tour operator

In the last several months, USA Holiday has used Facebook and Instagram to advertise trips from Koreatown, the San Fernando Valley and Southeast Los Angeles to casinos across Southern California.

.

In one Instagram post, USA Holiday advertised a $20 bus fare from Koreatown to the Red Earth Casino in Thermal, leaving at 8:30 p.m. three days per week. Passengers could stay at the casino for 4 1/2 hours and return to the L.A. area by the early morning.
