DANA POINT, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say nine children have been hurt when their van crashed into a tree in a Southern California coastal city.

The Orange County Fire Authority says the van smashed into the tree Wednesday afternoon in Dana Point.

The injured children are between 9 and 12 years old. Five youngsters suffered traumatic injuries, and four had minor injuries.

The driver refused transport to a hospital.

The van appeared to be towing a trailer carrying surfboards.



There’s no immediate word where the van was headed or what caused the crash about 60 miles (97 kilometers) south of Los Angeles.
