SUV Crashes Into San Jose School Bus, 4 Taken To Hospital

SAN JOSE (KCBS) — At least four people, including three children, were injured when a school bus collided head-on with an SUV in San Jose Thursday afternoon.

The crash was reported at 4:03 p.m. near East Julian and North 28th streets, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officer Chris Falkowski told KCBS the bus was headed westbound on Julian when a white pickup truck, heading eastbound, suddenly turned left in front of the bus. The two vehicles collided, which then caused the bus to then collide head on with a blue Ford Explorer.

Falkwoski said the bus was carrying about 4 dozen students from nearby San Jose High School at the time. Three of them complained of neck pain and were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The driver of the Explorer also complained of pain and was also hospitalized as a precaution.

The accident is under investigation and alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
