LA VERNE (CBSLA.com) — Traffic was snarled Monday for commuters traveling through La Verne due to a fiery tour bus crash.

Just after 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, officers were sent to the westbound 210 Freeway, just west of Fruit Street, for report of a stalled tour bus, according to California Highway Patrol officers.

Upon their arrival, authorities located 38 passengers lined up against the center divider of the freeway.

A preliminary investigation revealed the bus stalled and subsequently caught on fire in the carpool lane.

Officers issued a SigAlert for passengers to move to the right shoulder to board another bus.

Crews are also working to clean up diesel fuel and oil that spilled into a storm drain.

No injuries were reported.

CBS2’s Stephanie Simmons reported one westbound lane will remain closed until around 7:45 a.m.
