One woman was critically injured and another suffered serious injuries Monday morning when a school bus leaving Valley Christian High School struck them as they walked on a sidewalk, San Jose police Officer Enrique Garcia said.
A 48-year-old San Jose woman was driving the bus down the school's private, two-lane driveway toward Skyway Drive around 9 a.m. when for an unknown reason the bus struck two women, Garcia said.
A 26-year-old San Jose woman and a 48-year-old San Jose woman walking on the sidewalk uphill toward the campus were hit. The 26-year-old woman has been listed in critical condition and the 48-year-old woman in serious to moderate condition, Garcia said.
Investigators interviewed the bus driver but did not cite her or take her into custody. No children were on board the bus when the collision occurred.
"We have not been able to determine why (the collision) occurred," Garcia said.
Immediately following the crash, two cars driving up the hill toward campus collided, leaving occupants of the vehicles complaining of pain. Garcia said the second crash was unrelated.
