California Charter Bus Crash, Aug. 22, 2013, A total of 52 people were injured after a charter bus headed to a casino overturned Thursday morning on the eastbound 210 Freeway near the 605, Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center’s Dr. Leo Rodriguez said at a press conference Thursday afternoon.

There were eight whose injuries were deemed “immediate,” Rodriguez said, but he couldn’t say whether those injuries were life-threatening. Five of those patients — three females and two males — were taken to L.A. County/USC Medical Center.

Those injured ranged in age from 60 to 80 years old, Rodriguez said, with all the patients at L.A. County/USC Medical Center being actively treated and cared for. Rodriguez described the patients’ condition as guarded but stable, and said that none of them were currently in surgery, but couldn’t say whether any of them would need surgery.

“They were all conscious on arrival,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez said that there was a language barrier with some of those injured, but that they had staff translators at patients’ bedsides.

L.A. County/USC Medical Center is a level 1 trauma center with a 100-bed emergency department, Rodriguez said, and can shift other doctors in the area there if needed, but that they were able to handle this incident without doing so. All of the patience brought to L.A. County/USC Medical Center were brought there by air, Rodriguez said.
