9 students injured in Anaheim Hills school bus crash

A school bus crashed near a golf course in Anaheim Hills on Thursday afternoon, trapping the driver and leaving more than a dozen people injured, including nine students.

The crash was reported around 3:38 p.m. in the 6500 block of East Nohl Ranch Canyon Road, along the Anaheim Hills Golf Course, according to Fire Marshal Jeff Lutz of the Anaheim Fire Department. 

Video footage on KTLA showed the yellow bus wedged into a tree at the base of a hillside, and then the driver being extricated from the front of the vehicle.

Several people appeared to be receiving treatment on the ground outside the bus.

Lutz said there appeared to be 13 people receiving treatment. Anaheim Police Lt. Bob Dunn said at least nine of those injured were students. 

No ages or genders were available, nor were the conditions of any of those injured.

Lutz said about five paramedic units are on the scene.

Orange Unified School District confirmed on its Web page that it was one of the district's buses, but did not say where it was headed.
