At Least 9 Injured in California School Bus Crash

Design Pics/Thinkstock(ANAHEIM, Calif.) -- At least nine people were injured after a school bus crashed into trees in California on Thursday afternoon. Two students and the driver are in critical condition.

The bus traveled on a hill, hitting two trees while trying to make a turn, and the resulting impact split the vehicle in half. Firefighters needed to cut the driver from the bus, and students pulled out were seen being put on backboards by paramedics.

"It came flying down the hill and went curb airborne and took out trees along the way," witness Andrea Shurtz told affiliate KABC. "The kids are screaming for us. [We're] trying to get them to jump out but the slope is so horrible and people just came running from everywhere."

The bus is from the Orange Unified School District, officials told KABC. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
