Six students were injured in Fullerton on Thursday afternoon in a crash involving their school bus and a pickup truck, police said.

The special-needs students, ranging in age from their teens to early 20s, attend La Sierra High, an alternative school in Fullerton, police said.

Five of the students suffered minor to precautionary injuries and were taken to hospitals. The other student was taken to a hospital with minor to moderate injures, said Sgt. Andrew Goodrich of the Fullerton Police Department.

He told The Times that the bus was heading north on  State College Boulevard and turning left onto Dorothy Lane when it was struck by the pickup.

Goodrich said the two drivers were not taken to hospitals.

The accident, which was reported shortly after 2 p.m., was under investigation by the California Highway Patrol.
