LOS ANGELES -

A 25-year-old man from Los Angeles is facing multiple counts of felony endangerment, assault and aggravated assault after attempting to take the wheel of a Greyhound bus en route from Los Angeles to Dallas early today, injuring two dozen people, authorities said.

Arizona Department of Public Safety Officer Carrick Cook said Maquel Donyel Morris attacked the driver of the bus around 1:45 a.m. today on Interstate 10, near Tonopah, 50 miles west of Phoenix.

Cook said other passengers came to the aid of the driver and were able to stop the bus before it entered westbound lanes. Cook said the bus did not overturn.

Cook said 24 passengers were hospitalized, including one with lower body fractures.
