Authorities say at least 10 people are injured after a bus carrying prison inmates crashed on a freeway near Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Frank Garrido says the bus apparently hit something on Interstate 10 in El Monte on Thursday afternoon.

Television images show the sheriff's department bus upright and a guardrail damaged.

Garrido says ambulances were called to handle the injuries. There's no word yet on who was hurt or how badly.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
