PATTERSON (CBS13) – Three special needs students received minor injuries in a school bus crash Friday afternoon, authorities said.
The California Highway Patrol said a silver pickup truck ran a red light at an intersection on Baldwin Road, colliding with a school bus.
The bus crashed into a light pole and came to a rest on the sidewalk. The three students inside the bus suffered minor injuries and were taken to the hospital as a precaution.
Authorities say the driver of the truck was reaching for his wallet and ran the red light while he was distracted.
