The bus was having mechanical issues while going northbound on the 101 near Grand Avenue, so its driver slowed down while looking for an exit. The driver of a Honda Accord then crashed into the back of the bus.
Emergency responders transported the 30-year-old driver of the Accord to a hospital. One student on the bus also received treatment at a local hospital.
A total of 36 students and two adults were on the bus at the time of the crash.
The California Highway Patrol says the cause of the crash is under investigation, but drugs and alcohol have been ruled out.
