A Central Unified School District bus was involved in a three-vehicle crash west of Highway 99 Tuesday, injuring several people, including two high school students, the California Highway Patrol reported.
Sgt. Mike Trenholm with the Fresno CHP said the Central Unified bus was approaching Hayes Avenue just before 3 p.m. when a Chevy S10 pulled out into the intersection. The bus hit the truck and caused it to hit a third vehicle, a Honda Accord, which was stopped at Shields Avenue.
The driver of the bus as well as two students, ages 15 and 16, complained of pain and were transported to area hospitals for minor injuries. The driver of the Accord was transported to Saint Agnes Medical Center for neck pain and abrasions from an airbag. The driver of the truck declined medical care.
Trenholm said inattentiveness, and not drugs or alcohol, appear to be a factor in the crash.
