FALLBROOK, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 64-year-old woman who was killed when a bus crashed on a Southern California freeway that was headed to a casino.

The San Diego County medical examiner said Friday that Tayde Murguia of Los Angeles was killed when a bus overturned on Interstate 15 near Fallbrook.

The vehicle was heading from Los Angeles to the Valley View Casino & Hotel. Nineteen others were injured, six of them seriously.

Two other buses crashed in Southern California on Thursday, injuring dozens of others.

The causes of the crashes in Riverside and San Diego counties remain under investigation. Authorities say in each instance it was either raining or the roadways were slick from downpours.
