YUCCA VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - San Bernardino County authorities say a pickup truck driver is dead and four middle school students have minor injuries after a crash involving two school buses and two other vehicles in the Mojave Desert community of Yucca Valley.

Fire Department spokeswoman Tracey Martinez says the pickup driver was deceased when firefighters arrived after the 7 a.m. Friday crash at La Contenta Road and Yucca Trail. The occupant of the fourth vehicle was not injured.

Two of the injured students were taken to a hospital and the other two were released to their parents. Martinez says all the injuries were very minor.

There were about 70 students aboard the buses and those who were uninjured were taken to La Contenta Middle School.

The California Highway Patrol and county Sheriff's Department are investigating.
