VICTORVILLE, Calif. A school bus carrying 40 children in Southern California has been knocked on its side in a crash that has injured 13 children and the bus driver.

San Bernardino County fire spokeswoman Tracey Martinez says two of the children have "serious but non-life threatening" injuries. They were taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center.

The rest of the injured passengers were transported to other hospitals.

The crash occurred Thursday as the children were being taken home from Galileo Academy in Victorville, about 60 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

Authorities say a U-Haul truck collided with the school bus around 2 p.m. The two people in the U-Haul truck weren't hurt.

Police are investigating how the crash occurred.
