LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (KABC) -- An 18-year-old driver was hospitalized with major injuries after his car collided with a school bus at an intersection in Lake Elsinore.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Canyon Ridge and Summerhill drives around 7:15 a.m.

The Honda was unable to stop and collided with the left front of the bus. The school bus came to rest in the middle of the intersection with the Honda lodged under the front of the bus.
