RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Officials say 14 people are injured following a crash near a California casino.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that two people suffered critical injuries in the crash at 8 p.m. Saturday near the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula

The paper says fire officials reported four others had moderate injuries and eight sustained minor injuries.

Casino spokesman Robert Bledsoe tells the paper that a shuttle carrying New Year's revelers from the casino to their cars may have been driving on an access road when it collided with a vehicle exiting the casino area.
