Calif. tour bus collision death toll rises to 8



Published: Wed, February 6, 2013 @ 11:47 a.m.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Elvira Garcia Jimenez, a 40-year-old doctor at a Tijuana, Mexico, hospital, brought along her mother and her teenage son on a day trip to a Southern California ski resort with a tight knit group of her co-workers.

None of the three would return.

They were among seven people killed Sunday night when their California tour bus crashed on a two-lane highway on a return trip from the mountain resort of Big Bear.

The death toll rose to eight today when the driver of a pickup truck struck by the bus, Fred Bailey Richardson, 72, of San Bernardino, died at Loma Linda University Medical Center, said coroner's supervisor Tony Campisi.

Jimenez's son, 13-year-old Victor Cabrera-Garcia, had wanted to see snow as a way to celebrate his birthday on Jan. 13, Luz Garcia told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
