A three-vehicle crash involving a school bus between Reedley and Orange Cove on Friday sent three adults to hospitals with moderate and minor injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The accident happened about 4:10 p.m. at East Manning and South Crawford avenues.

A 29-year-old Kenniwick, Wash. man driving a Jaguar eastbound on Manning attempted to cross the westbound lane, to turn left onto Crawford. Before turning, he failed to yield to a Mustang traveling westbound, and the two vehicles collided, CHP said.

A school bus behind the Jaguar hit the brakes, CHP said, but was unable to avoid slamming into the crashed Jaguar.

The Jaguar driver and the Mustang driver, a 38-year-old woman from Orange Cove, were sent to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno with moderate injuries. The school bus driver, a 55-year-old Parlier woman, had minor injuries and was sent to Adventist Medical Center -- Reedley.

The accident remains under investigation. No one had been arrested as of Saturday morning.
