LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say they're trying to determine who was at fault in a two-vehicle collision that sent a pickup truck crashing into a Las Vegas bus stop, hitting a father and critically injuring his three young children.

Police say the children, ages 5 and younger, were taken to University Medical Center after the 5:45 a.m. Friday crash, including one who underwent surgery for a serious head injury.

Their father was taken with them to the hospital but wasn't reported to have been seriously hurt.

Police Sgt. Richard Strader told reporters the pickup drivers each claimed to have a green light at the busy Bonanza Road and Lamb Boulevard intersection east of downtown.

He said both passed sobriety tests and neither appeared impaired.

Detectives say they're looking for witnesses to the crash.
