SHELDON, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a car sideswiped a small school bus in Northern California and then hit another vehicle, giving three people aboard the bus minor injuries.

The Sacramento Bee newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/2eoilId ) that the bus tipped on its side after the crash about 7 a.m. Monday near Sheldon, about 20 miles southeast of Sacramento.

California Highway Patrol Officer Michael Bradley says the driver of a car involved in the collision was taken to the hospital in critical condition after the vehicle sideswiped the bus, then hit another vehicle and a tree.

Officials say an Elk Grove High School student, the school bus driver and another adult had cuts and abrasions. Three middle school students had no visible injuries, but two were taken to a hospital as a precaution.
