A group of teenagers were trapped inside a school bus that slid down a snow-covered embankment in the San Bernardino Mountains after colliding with another vehicle, authorities said Monday.

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.

The accident was reported shortly before noon along Highway 189 near Lake Gregory Drive, southwest of Lake Gregory in Crestline, officials said.
