NEAR MCMINNVILLE, OR (KPTV) – Three people were hurt in the three-vehicle crash near McMinnville Monday involving a school bus with kids inside, Oregon State Police says.

The crash occurred near Durham Lane and Highway 18 just west of McMinnville.

A driver in a white Yukon hit a minivan while attempting to cross Highway 18 to continue south on Durham Lane, according to OSP.

The impact of the collision caused the minivan to rotate counter-clockwise into the westbound lane of the highway, where it crashed into the side of a school bus full of children, law enforcement says. None of the kids inside were hurt.

The minivan came to rest off the westbound shoulder of the highway, OSP says. Two occupants were transported by ambulance to the Willamette Valley Medical Center with injures, and a third was taken by helicopter to Emanuel Hospital in Portland. No other injuries were reported.

The highway in the area was closed for about an hour-and-a-half while law enforcement was on scene.
