Wrong-Way Driver Hits School Bus On 60 Freeway

RIVERSIDE (CBS/AP) — Authorities say a group of children are fine after a wrong-way driver reportedly smashed head-on into a school bus in Riverside County.

The collision took place right off the westbound 60 Freeway at Pedley Road shortly before 11 a.m. Wednesday.

It appears only one student and the bus driver suffered minor injuries. The other driver was also hurt, but survived.

It was unclear how many students were aboard the bus.

The offramp at Pedley Road has been closed, according to authorities.
