Crews were on the scene for hours after a tour bus crashed on a Southern California highway Thursday.
The bus was carrying passengers to a casino near San Diego when it overturned on slick roads.
At least one person was killed and dozens were hurt.
Investigators are trying to figure out if the rain had anything to do with the crash.
SOUNDBITE: JIM BETTENCOURT, CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL, SAYING:
"Whether or not he hydroplaned, or whether or not something happened, it's hard to say but traveling uphill obviously we don't see a lot of crashes that happen like this so we're gonna have a lot of questions for the passengers on the bus and we're hopefully gonna get down to the bottom of exactly what happened here."
In a separate incident, another tour bus carrying passengers from a San Diego casino spun out and overturned near Corona, California.
All 30 people on board were hurt, some were taken to local hospitals.
The cause of that crash is under investigation, but rain may have also played a factor.
