TWIN PEAKS, Calif. — A church bus with up to 20 teens aboard slid over the side of a highway in a Southern California ski area after colliding with a county fire vehicle.

California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman Bill Peters tells the San Bernardino Sun that the accident occurred Monday afternoon near the town of Twin Peaks.

He says the bus fell about 20 feet over the side of the road after colliding with a San Bernardino County Fire Department vehicle and a power pole.

Peters tells KCAL-TV that the bus belonged to Pasadena-based Light of Love Mission Church.

The church and a California Highway Patrol spokesman did not return calls from the Associated Press.

The accident occurred in an area popular with skiers about 70 miles east of Los Angeles.
