SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A tour bus carrying visitors from Yosemite National Park was traveling at an unsafe speed when the driver lost control and crashed on a mountain road, leaving 16 people injured, the California Highway Patrol said Sunday. The bus was about six miles outside of the south entrance of the park when it went off Highway 41, a winding mountain road when it crashed about 6 p.m. Saturday. It came to a stop when it hit a tree, CHP Officer Scott Jobinger said.

I'm wondering if they were heading to the Chukchansi Gold Indian Casino from Yosemite. Otherwise, why would a Bay Area charter bus company with passengers from the Bay Area take Hwy 41 instead of Hwy 120 out of Yosemite unless maybe if the tourists were staying overnight at the Tenaya Lodge.

Too bad so many people got hurt in the crash. Not good.

I used to drive that route every morning to get to work in wawona. I've seen so many accidents there over the years and nearly every one was from speeding. It is a road that you need to slow down on
