CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say five people were hospitalized in a seven-vehicle crash involving a school bus and a fire department truck in the Tampa Bay area.

The Tampa Bay Times (https://goo.gl/JZYoKH ) reports that none of the 15 students from Safety Harbor Middle School were injured in the Friday afternoon crash.

Police say an SUV failed to yield for a Clearwater Fire and Rescue vehicle that was responding to a call with its sirens and lights on. That collision trigged the others.
