A bus that crashed into a semi-truck near Palm Springs, killing 13 people Sunday, was using tires that were too worn by industry standards, federal official announced Tuesday.

It’s not yet clear whether the tires contributed to the crash, the Orange County Register reports. 

Because of the tires, the bus would have been “placed out of service” if it had been inspected, said board member Earl Weener said at a news conference.

Four of the eight tires lacked enough tread to comply with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.

Investigators also are reviewing the bus’s braking system.

The 59-year-old driver was among 13 killed.
