A three-vehicle crash that included a city school bus sent five people to the hospital Monday afternoon, according to fire officials.

The cause of the crash, which occurred about 4 p.m. in the 600 block of Patapsco Ave. in Southwest Baltimore, was unclear, Chief Kevin Cartwright, a spokesman for the Baltimore Fire Department, said Monday night.

Cartwright did not know whether any children were injured, though he said the bus "didn't suffer the brunt of the damages."

Dispatches emailed to The Baltimore Sun from the Firefighters Union Local 734 said two people were extricated from vehicles and that a man and a woman, both 22, were taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
