TONOPAH, Ariz. (AP) — State police say a passenger attacked the driver of a Greyhound bus, leading to a crash on Interstate 10 in western Arizona that left numerous people injured.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says the Dallas-bound bus was heading east from Los Angeles when the accident occurred near Tonopah (TONE’-ah-pah) shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday.

The DPS says the bus crossed the highway median, but came to a stop before entering westbound traffic when other passengers restrained the man who had been pummeling the driver.

DPS spokesman Bart Graves says 25-year-old Maquel Donyel Morris of Los Angeles has been arrested and will be booked into jail on suspicion of numerous counts of endangerment, assault and aggravated assault.

Twenty-three people are injured, including three airlifted to hospitals for non-life threatening injuries.
