Sgt. Michael Schwab told KFSN-TV two of the injured were flown to the hospital with head trauma after Saturday's crash on State Route 41, south of Fish Camp.

Schwab said 22 people were on the bus, most of them 12- to 15-year-old Chinese students and their adult chaperones who were heading to their hotel in Fresno after visiting the park.
