Investigators say the mom picked up the 16-year-old driver and his 14-year-old sister after the crash.
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The mother of a 16-year-old driver has been arrested for her involvement after he allegedly crashed into a bus stop injuring 11 students.
Officers took 36-year-old Yesenia Renteria into custody for felony accessory after the fact.
Her 16-year-old son is accused of unintentionally crashing his truck into a FAX bus stop outside Roosevelt High School on Wednesday afternoon.
More than 20 students were waiting for the bus at the time of the crash. The ages of the 11 injured range from 14 to 17 years.
FAX says the bus stop was a newer model, made of steel, anchored deep into the ground.
"Just based on the way that truck hit our bus stop. The way it buckled at that point it probably stopped the truck from continuing to move forward," said Gregory Barfield, City of Fresno Interim Director of Transportation.
He says it likely prevented more serious injuries and more kids from getting hit.
Renteria was booked into the Fresno County jail but has since bonded out.
The 16-year-old suspect was also arrested for felony hit and run and DUI charges.
Police say the DUI charges stem from the suspect having marijuana in his system.
