FRESNO, Calif. - A school bus and a big rig have crashed in central California, sending 15 people to local hospitals with moderate and minor injuries.

The California Highway Patrol said the collision occurred about 2 p.m. Monday at South Elm and East Central Avenues in Fresno County.

The CHP said the 3,000-gallon gasoline truck was overturned in the crash, and that the intersection was blocked.

Linda Dominguez, a business manager at Orange Center Elementary School District, told the Fresno Bee that the bus was bringing students home.
