Officials arrested a 17-year-old on suspicion of DUI after the teen’s car collided with a Metro bus in East Los Angeles Wednesday morning, sending 14 people to the hospital, authorities said.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department said it received a call about the incident on Whittier Boulevard and Downey Road at around 10:45 a.m.

Aerial footage from Sky5 shows crews wheeling people into ambulances. A total of 14 patients were taken to the hospital–three of them in critical condition and 11 who had minor injuries, according to the Fire Department.

The bus apparently plowed into the teen’s Volkswagen Beetle, which appeared mangled at the corner of the sidewalk.

The California Highway Patrol did not identify the car’s driver, who was seen being detained near the crash.
