A school bus transporting teenagers to University City High School was involved in an accident with a pedestrian early Wednesday.
The California Highway Patrol was investigating the incident that occurred at 6:42 a.m. at the intersection of Ocean View Boulevard and S 39th Street in Mountain View.
San Diego police said a 12-year-old girl was walking across the street when she was struck by the school bus.
The driver of the bus told NBC 7 he didn’t see the girl when he turned left onto Ocean View. He said the bus touched the girl before coming to a complete stop.
The girl was transported to a nearby hospital by San Diego Fire-Rescue personnel. Officers described the girl's injuries as minor scrapes and bruising.
The bus full of students was parked for more than an hour while officials collected information. They were transferred to another bus before 8 a.m.
