imageHESPERIA-( Three people were transported with minor injuries after a Victor Valley Transit (VVTA) bus was involved in a collision with a van Monday morning. The traffic collision was reported just before 9:00 a.m. on Main Street just west of I Avenue.

Fourteen passengers were reported to be involved in the minor damage traffic collision. The

San Bernardino County Sheriff officials from the Hesperia station said that the male driver in the van attempted to maneuver around the bus, which caused the bus to strike the passenger side of the van.

San Bernardino County Fire Department Engineer, Eric Spis said, “Anytime a call comes out [with a] bus with passengers we always send out a full MCI (Mass Casualty Incident) response with multiple engines and ambulances.”

Three engines, three ambulances, one truck company, and one batallion chief responded to the collision. No other injuries were reported as a result of the collision. The three injured were transported to Desert Valley Hospital for complaints of pain.
