A school bus carrying students crashed alongside a golf course in Anaheim Hills today, leaving several people injured.

Authorities received reports around 3:40 p.m. that the bus was lodged between trees on a hillside on the 6500 block of East Nohl Ranch Canyon Road, according to the L.A. Times.

CHP Officer Florentino Olivera told City News Service that two students and the driver were taken to a hospital to be treated for their injuries; they were said to be in critical condition. There were a total of 13 people who were reportedly injured; however, the other 10 suffered non-life-threatening injuries, CBS Los Angeles reported.

The driver had been trapped inside the bus and crews had to pull him out of the wreckage. The students on the bus are from El Rancho Charter School in Anaheim, which teaches K-12.
