TWO TEENS KILLED, 43 HURT IN BUS CRASH.
Parowan, Utah (AP) - A chartered bus carrying high school students and scouts home from a ski trip rolled over early Saturday, killing two people and injuring 43 others, police said.
The cause of the accident on Interstate 15 was under investigation, but "it looked like a case of a sleepy driver," said Utah Highway Patrol trooper David Excell.
The injuries included broken bones, fractures and a concussion. The injured included students from Laguna Hills, Dana Point and Capistrano High Schools in Orange County, two advisers and a driver. Authorities said 38 were treated for minor injuries and were released.
The dead were identified by the highway patrol as AMY GEORGE, 17, of Dana Point, and BYRON HEARNE, 16, of Mission Viejo.
