A 13-year-old boy suffered a broken nose and cuts to his face this morning when he collided with a school bus while riding his bicycle, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.

The accident was reported at about 7:50 a.m. on Oregon Avenue just west of Carmel Drive, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.

The boy, who was not wearing a helmet, was coming through a passageway from Oregon Expressway to Oregon Avenue, according to Montiel.

"He basically ran the stop sign and hit the right front of a school bus that was traveling east on Oregon Avenue," Montiel said.

The teen was taken to Stanford Hospital to be treated for a broken nose and facial lacerations, he said.

There were only two children on the bus at the time, and they were not injured, he said.
