SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say five people were injured after a passenger on a Greyhound bus grabbed the steering wheel from the driver, forcing it into a ditch off a Southern California freeway.

California Highway Patrol Sgt. Grady Stevens says the bus careened off Interstate 10 in San Bernardino, crashed through a chain link fence and into the ditch Saturday afternoon.

Stevens said the man who caused the crash broke a bus window and ran several blocks before collapsing in the parking lot of an Olive Garden restaurant. Stevens said he was taken to a hospital to get treated for a gashed forearm before getting arrested.
