Two elementary school students were unhurt when their school bus was involved in a traffic collision Monday afternoon.

Two Hollyvale Elementary School students were aboard a bus Monday at 3 p.m., when the bus was involved in a collision with a Mazda pick-up near the intersection of I and Alston Avenues. (Although Hollyvale is located on the west side of Interstate 15 in Victorville, it provides schooling for elementary-age deaf and hard of hearing students, who are bussed throughout the district as a result.)

The bus caved in the passenger side of the truck approximately three feet.

"The female that was in the car, last I heard, was going to be airlifted out with injuries," said Sgt. Cindy McCarter of the Hesperia Unified School District, who was the officer in charge at the time, although not the officer on the scene.

Early indications are that the truck driver was at fault, according to the HUSD school police.

"It appears that way, yeah," said McCarter.

A California Highway Patrol investigation into the cause of the collision is ongoing. CHP is called in to investigate all school bus collisions that have students on board.
