IRWINDALE, Calif. (AP) - A tour bus carrying gamblers to an Indian casino overturned on a Southern California freeway, injuring 55 people on board.

The bus went off the side of Interstate 210 around 10 a.m. and ended up on its side in dirt between the freeway and railroad tracks.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department says more than 50 people received minor injuries, including nine who were taken to hospitals for evaluation or treatment. At least five were flown by helicopters to trauma centers.

Los Angeles County Fire Capt. Brian Jordan said bystanders aided firefighters in the rescue. Some bus passengers got out on their own.

The bus was from Da Zhen Travel Agency in the Los Angeles suburb of Monterey Park. It was heading to the San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino in Highland.
