Crash victims noticed swerving before bus overturned

A bus taking passengers to the Masters golf tournament flipped over on a Georgia interstate on Thursday, injuring numerous people.

The bus overturned after driver Steven Hoppenbrouwer overcorrected.

He said the interior of the bus matched a photo on the company's website showing colorful strip lighting, a single row of seats lining each side of the bus and cocktail glasses hanging over a bar.

Officials at Augusta University Medical Center told KRDW they were treating seven people involved in the crash.

According to an official at Doctors Hospital, one patient is in critical condition, one is in fair condition and one is serious.

The crash happened at 8:45 a.m. on an interstate in Columbia County, Georgia, as the bus was en route to the golf tournament in nearby Augusta. The bus driver has been charged with driving under the influence. He said passengers told authorities the bus had drifted off the edge of the roadway before it veered and crashed. "They are fortunate. They went to a hospital to get checked out", Claud said. The others hurt didn't receive life-threatening injuries.
