Six children en route to classes and their school bus driver were slightly hurt today in a collision, but a passenger car driver was seriously injured. The lone occupant of the auto, who suffered head wounds, was flown by helicopter to Northridge Hospital. Paramedics took five of the injured students to nearby West Park hospital, and the bus driver and another child were taken to West Hill Humana Hospital, also in Canoga Park. Six ambulances, a helicopter and two task forces were sent to the accident scene in the 23700 block of Vanowen Street at 7:21 a.m. Valley Traffic Division officers and L.A. Unified School District authorities were investigating the cause of the accident. Photograph dated June 9, 1986.
