October 30, 2013
A large truck collided with a Righetti High School bus in Santa Maria early Wednesday morning injuring 20 students and the bus driver.
Shortly after 7 a.m., emergency personnel responded to the intersection of Foxen Canyon Road and Orcutt-Gary Road to find the driver trapped in the vehicle. It took firefighters about an hour to extract the driver from the vehicle.
Most of the injured students were treated at the scene and either released to their parents or transported to school. Three students and the bus driver were transported to Marian Regional Medical Center.
