Several Injured In Anaheim Hills School Bus Crash

Posted: Updated:
Anaheim, CA - (FOX 11 / CNS) A school bus driver and two students were critically injured and several other students sustained minor injuries yesterday when a school bus veered off a road and crashed into some trees near the Anaheim Hills golf course.

The bus crashed just before 3:40 p.m. on Nohl Ranch Road near Walnut Canyon Road, according to California Highway Patrol Officer John Latosquin. The bus was from the Orange Unified School District and was believed to be carrying students from El Rancho Charter School in Anaheim.

The bus driver and two students were taken to a hospital in critical condition while three other students sustained minor injuries, according to CHP Officer Florentino Olivera.

There were 11 students on the bus, he added.

The bus was northbound in the right lane coming down a hill when it veered off the road, collided with a tree and came to rest against another tree, Olivera said. The bus' driver was trapped inside the crashed vehicle and had to be cut from the wreckage. The bus wound up leaning against a tree. At least one other tree was knocked over by the crash.

CHP identifies the driver of school bus involved in Anaheim Hills crash as Gerald Douglass Rupple II.

The California Highway Patrol was investigating the cause of the crash, which is standard protocol for accidents involving school buses.
