Three men, ages 39, 45, and 56, also died at the scene.

All of the deceased were from China.

The group was returning to Las Vegas from the Grand Canyon when the bus crashed near Dolan Springs.

Seven of the 10 injured remained hospitalized Wednesday, including the driver, 48-year-old Han Dong of Rosemead, Calif. He is in fair condition.

Investigators say they don't believe Dong was impaired, but passengers indicated he might have been distracted before the crash.
