California Bus Bench Crash Leaves Two Dead [Breaking]

A South California bus stop was not a safe place to wait today, as a car crashed into it in Riverside.

Officer Bryan Galbreath says the accident happened about 1 pm Friday when a car rolled into the sidewalk, hit a light pole and then slammed into a bench where four people waited for a bus, according to ABC News.

The accident left two people injured and two dead. A woman and a girl were pronounced dead on arrival, and a man and a woman have been taken to the hospital with severe injuries.

The driver has been detained, and may or may not have been intoxicated.

Magnolia Avenue traffic is blocked off both directions west of Tyler. It is expected to be closed until at least 10 pm, says Press Enterprise.

Identities have not been released, and further details are still to come as the story develops.
