NEW YORK

At least 13 people were killed Sunday and 31 others injured when a charter bus collided with a semi-truck in California, U.S. officials said.

The early morning crash occurred when the bus that was carrying casino-goers along Interstate 10 near Palm Springs, Riverside County, rammed into a big rig, which was pulling a trailer and traveling at 5 miles per hour due to traffic breaks caused by road work, according to a statement by the California Highway Patrol.

The cause of the accident is yet to be determined. It is unclear whether the driver suffered fatigue, was driving under the influence of alcohol or if some other factor contributed to the crash.
