(Blythe, CA) -- Traffic is starting to once again flow through a busy California-Arizona corridor after a deadly tour bus crash left the lane completely shut down. Caltrans officials have opened one eastbound lane on Interstate 10 near Blythe. They won't say when the rest of the eastbound lanes or any of the westbound lanes will reopen. Four people were killed when a tour bus crashed into some steel pipes that had been dropped into the roadway by a big rig early Wednesday morning. Caltrans officials say motorists have been using frontage roads to get around the crash and that traffic has been flowing smoothly.
