The buses collided just before 2:30 p.m. at Hawthorne Boulevard and Silver Spur Road, according to the California Highway Patrol’s traffic incident log.

The location is next to Palos Verdes Peninsula High School. Soleado Elementary is a few blocks away.

Sixty children were on the two buses, and 10 to 15 of them were being treated for minor injuries, according to Randall Wright of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

A tweet from the department later said 17 patients were assessed for injuries, but only one person -- an adult -- was transported to a hospital.

Aerial video showed at least six emergency vehicles on scene. The buses that crashed were not visible.
