AUBURN, Wash. -- An SUV rear-ended a school bus in Auburn Tuesday, injuring several people.

The crash happened at 2:56 p.m. near 800 Harvey Road Northeast in Auburn.

The driver of the SUV swerved to avoid a sudden stop, and rear-ended the school bus in the next lane, police said. The crash caused the hood of the SUV to become partially lodged underneath the school bus. The male driver in that car had to be extricated by firefighters. He was transported to Harborview Medical Center by helicopter with unknown injuries.  

A car in front of the bus was also involved in the crash. A male passenger in that car was also taken to the hospital, but with minor injuries.

The female driver of the bus sustained minor injuries.  

Only two students, both teenage males, were on board the bus at the time. Neither of them were injured.

The bus was from the Muckleshoot School District.
