Tour bus flips on dirt road in Arizona farm area, 23 hurt

YUMA, Ariz. (AP) - A tour bus has crashed while on an agricultural sightseeing trip near the Arizona-Mexico border, injuring more than 20 people.

A Yuma County Sheriff's Office spokesman says the bus flipped onto its side Thursday morning as it went up an embankment while making a turn on a dirt road next to a field.

Office spokesman Alfonso Zavala says the bus was carrying 52 people, including 23 who were hurt. He says two of the injured have been flown to Phoenix-area hospitals.

Zavala says none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening, but no other details were immediately available.

The bus is operated by Phoenix-based Tour West America. A woman who answered the company's phone says officials are still trying to gather information.
