12 Hurt In I-10 Bus Crash

Police say 12 people on a commercial bus are hurt when the driver lost control and the vehicle crashed on Interstate 10 in South Texas.

Police say the Turimex Internacional bus hit an embankment Monday night near Seguin (sih-GEEN'), about 30 miles northeast of San Antonio. Turimex Internacional, which offers passenger service between Mexico and the U.S., didn't immediately comment Wednesday.

Seguin police Sgt. Mike McCann says the bus driver apparently lost control while changing lanes on westbound I-10 . One person suffered injuries believed to be life-threatening. McCann says the dozen other victims have lesser injuries and most were treated and released from a hospital.

Names of the victims weren't released. Officials say more than 20 people were on board.

Police say the driver will not face criminal charges.
