More than a dozen senior citizens were slightly injured Thursday after the van in which they were riding collided with another vehicle in Reseda, authorities said.

The incident occurred just after 9 a.m. in the 6600 block of North Wilbur Avenue, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Matt Spence. At least 15 passengers were in the van, which is operated by Genesis Adult Day Health Care.

Seven of the passengers were treated at the scene and released, while seven others were transported to local hospitals to be assessed, Spence said. The driver of the car was also transported to a hospital, he said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

[For the Record, 11:10 a.m., Aug. 4: Authorities now say that the shuttle van collided with one passenger car, and not two as earlier reported.]
