WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A university bus carrying medical students and health workers overturned on a busy freeway interchange Thursday, injuring 20 people and snarling rush-hour traffic around the state capital.
All the injuries were minor, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.
The University of California, Davis, bus crashed shortly before 9 a.m., Sgt. Evan Williams said. All five lanes were closed on the freeway, part of the downtown business portion of Interstate 80.
The bus was carrying 28 passengers, Williams said. Most were students and hospital employees, said Meagan Herda, 20, a student assistant in pediatrics.
"It seemed like maybe she (the bus driver) was overcompensating and trying to get out of the way of something," Herda said.
