A fiery crash that pushed a parked school bus into a home just east of Hemet early Sunday has resulted in at least one confirmed death, a fire official is reporting.
According to media reports from the scene, an SUV crashed through a gate and struck an apparently empty school bus parked on a residential property at approximately 12:05 a.m. in the 43400 block of Cedar Avenue in the town of Valle Vista.
The force of the crash wedged the silver older model SUV into the front windshield of the school bus.
Officials with the Riverside County Fire Department and Sobaba Fire responded to the scene where multiple occupants were trapped in the burning SUV, according to media reports from the scene.
“The incident resulted in one confirmed fatality,” according to a report from Jody Hagemann, spokeswoman for the Riverside County Fire Department.
The total number of victims injured in the fiery wreck was not reported by Hagemann.
No one inside the home was displaced by the incident, according to Hagemann.
