A Greyhound spokesperson reported that bus 86558 was on schedule from LA to SF, with stops in San Jose and Oakland.
Before the bus flipped, it hit impact barrels on the freeway, and may have been changing lanes.
The morning commute, already held up by moderate to heavy rain, was further delayed in the vicinity, as the Associated Press reports.
