SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say 15 people, including seven children, were taken to the hospital when a bus and trolley car collided in downtown San Francisco.

Fire and transportation officials say the trolley rear-ended the bus shortly after 11 a.m. Wednesday. They describe the most significant injuries as bumps and bruises.

One of the vehicles' drivers was among the injured taken to the hospital. Others injured were treated at the scene.

The cause of the collision and how fast the trolley was going at the time are under investigation.

Officials say the kids who were injured on the bus were part of a day camp group. Several of them were sitting on the sidewalk holding ice packs to their heads after the collision.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene as service resumed around 12:45 p.m.
