    YUCAIPA, Calif. (AP) - California authorities have lowered the death toll in a tour bus crash from eight to seven.

    The California Highway Patrol and a San Bernardino County coroner's investigator said Monday it was initially believed two bodies had remained inside inaccessible wreckage, but there turned out to be only one.

    The bus carrying a group from Tijuana, Mexico, to the San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles collided with two other vehicles Sunday night. Debris and body parts created a scene of horrific carnage.

    The bus could not be entered until Monday because the wreckage was perched precariously off the side of a road.

    Dozens of people were injured, some critically.
