Chinese Embassy officials on Saturday said they had dispatched staffers to assist victims of a tour bus crash near Bryce Canyon National Park in southern Utah that killed four people and left 27 others on board critically injured.

Highway Patrol authorities believe the bus registered to America Shengjia Inc. in Monterey Park, Calif., had traveled up from Las Vegas and was en route to the park on Friday morning when it swerved and rolled onto a guard rail near a highway rest stop.

Most of the tourists on board were Mandarin-speaking older adults, authorities said, and some of them were not wearing seat belts. The driver, an American citizen, survived and was cooperating with local law enforcement authorities.

America Shengjia could not be reached for comment.
