1 dead, some seriously hurt in San Bernardino Mountains bus crash; teens trapped [Updated]
The California Highway Patrol reports that there was one fatality and other serious injuries after a school bus filled with teenagers collided with another vehicle and went down a snow-covered embankment near Crestline.
The CHP's website said the coroner's office has been called to the scene in the San Bernardino Mountains as crews tried to rescue trapped teens inside the bus.
Several of the youths have been extricated from the bus, and a makeshift triage center was set up nearby, according to KCAL-TV, Channel 9. Authorities said they believe there were at least 20 students on board, with half of them immobilized in the crash.
[Updated at 4:20 p.m.: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that two people were killed in the crash. But authorities later confirmed that one person had been killed.]
