SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in Southern California say two men fleeing from police in a stolen taco truck sideswiped a school bus full of children, took down the lights at an intersection and smashed into a propane truck.

No one was seriously hurt in the chase Monday. San Bernardino police Lt. Rich Lawhead says the men fled after officers spotted them in the stolen truck on a highway.

After the crash, witnesses tell the San Bernardino Sun that officers fired two shots at the men.

Driver Jeremy Morales says the scene was so crazy that he pulled into a nearby service station to get out of the way.

Lawhead says the men in the truck were taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Other buses took the children to school.
