Posted on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 3:36pm


Three children received minor injuries, following a traffic accident involving a school bus on the Central Coast.

It happened at just before 8 a.m. at the intersection of Broadway, and Donovan Road in Santa Maria.

The CHP says the bus was stopped, waiting to make a turn, when the driver of a small pickup truck lost control of the vehicle, and hit the bus.

There were more than 70 students on board the bus, which was headed to Rice Elementary School.

Two of the children were taken to the hospital for treatment of their minor injuries, while the third child injured was treated at the scene.

The CHP hasn’t determined the cause of the crash, but rain may be a factor.
