SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (AP) - One person was killed and three others were taken to the hospital after a bus carrying a choir from Alabama and four other vehicles collided in South San Francisco.

California Highway Patrol Officer Bert Diaz said the accident started as a three-car collision on U.S. 101 early Saturday when the bus driver, unable to stop in time, hit the vehicles. A man behind the wheels of a Lincoln Navigator crashed into the bus and died.

The bus caught fire but it was quickly extinguished. The conditions of the injured are not known.
