FALLBROOK, Calif. (AP) - Three bus crashes in rainy Southern California have killed one person and injured dozens of others.

The California Highway Patrol says a tour bus heading to a casino in San Diego County overturned Thursday afternoon on southbound Interstate 15 near Fallbrook.

CHP Officer Robert Catano says one person died and 19 suffered minor to severe injuries.

At almost the same time, 30 people suffered minor to moderate injuries when a tour bus coming from another casino overturned in the freeway's northbound lanes about 50 miles away in the Corona area of Riverside County.

Another crash Thursday morning involving a county transit bus in Riverside County sent 14 people to hospitals. Most of them had minor injuries.
