(AP) — More than two dozen people have been injured in a crash involving a bus, a Jeep and a tractor-trailer.

It happened Sunday evening in Yeadon, just outside of Philadelphia.

Officials say the Jeep pulled out of a driveway and onto the road and crashed into the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority bus, which then hit the tractor-trailer.

A SEPTA spokesman tells WCAU-TV (http://bit.ly/2a4sQyv ) that 26 passengers on the bus and two pedestrians were hurt. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Sarandon, who like the other stars in attendance campaigned on behalf of Sen. Bernie Sanders, said the rally's turnout was proof that theirs was a movement and not a cult of personality as some critics alleged.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Thousands of demonstrators took to Philadelphia's sweltering streets Sunday, cheering, chanting and beating drums in the first major protests ahead of the Democratic National Convention, as the city wilted during a heat wave.

Throngs of Bernie Sanders supporters marched down a main thoroughfare to show their support of him and disdain for Hillary Clinton ahead of the convention.

Chanting "Hell No, DNC, we won't vote for Hillary" and "This is what democracy looks like," the marchers headed from City Hall down Broad Street, the main north-south artery that leads from the city center to the convention site about 4 miles away.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Flames raced down a steep hillside "like a freight train," leaving smoldering remains of homes and forcing thousands to flee the wildfire churning through tinder-dry canyons in Southern California, authorities said Sunday.

The fire that has destroyed at least 18 homes in northern Los Angeles County gained ferocious new power two days after it broke out, sending so much smoke in the air that planes making drops on it had to be grounded for part of the afternoon.

"For this time of year, it's the most extreme fire behavior I've seen in my 32-year career," County fire Chief Daryl Osby said.

About 300 miles up the coast, crews were battling another fire spanning more than 16 square miles and forcing evac

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kyle Busch heard all about the potential to pull off a historic sweep at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

On Sunday, he accomplished the feat.

Busch led a record 149 of 170 laps and beat teammate Matt Kenseth to the finish line in a second overtime to win his second straight Brickyard 400. Coupled with an Xfinity Series victory a day earlier, Busch became the first NASCAR driver to win both poles and both races on the same weekend.

"I've never had a dominant car like this," Busch said after celebrating his fourth win of the season with his wife and son. "This is obviously a special day and a special car."

The impressive feat even overshadowed two other major story lines — Jeff Gordon's comeback

Eighteen people have died in New England since October, compared to seven in the 12-month period that ended in October, said Nicole Grolls, a Coast Guard spokeswoman in Boston.

The problem can partly be attributed to the growing popularity of paddleboards, kayaks and canoes but too many paddlers are unprepared for changing conditions, don't have appropriate safety gear and lack skills needed to stay safe when the unexpected happens, said Walter Taylor, a Coast Guard recreational boating safety specialist.

The dpa news agency reported that the nearby open-air concert with some 2,500 in attendance was shut down as a precaution after the explosion.

Dalrymple didn't say if any players or staff were onboard the bus.

New York was discussing a trade that would send Chapman to the Chicago Cubs as part of a swap that would bring 19-year-old shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres to the Yankees, a person familiar with the discussions told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because talks were ongoing and New York owner Hal Steinbrenner had not made any final decision.

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Australia's Olympic team leader is keeping the delegation's 700 athletes or staff out of the Athletes Village for at least two days, citing electrical and plumbing problems in the sprawling complex less than two weeks before the start of the games in Rio de Janeiro.

"Electricity and water is not a good combination," Kitty Chiller told reporters Sunday, when the village was set to be officially opened for athletes.

Chiller said this was her fifth Olympics, and she came down hard on village preparations.

"I have never experienced a village in this state — or lack of state — of readiness at this point in time," she said.

The 31-building village is expected to house 18,000 athletes and offi

DENVER (AP) — Starting pitchers aren't supposed to have stat lines quite like this — winning ones, anyway. Rookie shortstops aren't supposed to make it look this easy for an entire series.

Just that kind of weekend for Colorado.

Tyler Chatwood allowed one hit over five erratic innings, Trevor Story lined his fourth homer in three games and the Rockies swept the Atlanta Braves with a 7-2 win Sunday.

"Four-game sweeps are extremely difficult in this league, next to impossible," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "So that's an accomplishment right there."

Chatwood (9-6) finished with an intriguing line: a career-high eight walks, one hit — Freddie Freeman's single in the first — six strikeouts and no runs.

The ministers of the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations met over three sessions on Sunday without result, thanks to Cambodia's intransigence over allowing the grouping to chastise China. They decided to meet again on Monday morning ahead of their scheduled meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

DENVER (AP) — Go figure: The Atlanta Braves had traffic on the bases nearly every inning and still lost.

Stranding 10 runners doesn't exactly help.

Tyler Chatwood allowed one hit over five erratic innings, Trevor Story lined his fourth homer in three games and the Colorado Rockies swept the Braves with a 7-2 win Sunday.

"It seemed like we should've been the one running away with the game, really, with all the baserunners we had," said Braves interim manager Brian Snitker, whose team was outscored 26-12 in the four-game series.

LAS VEGAS — Brock Lesnar returned from a 4 1/2-year UFC absence with a unanimous-decision victory over Mark Hunt, and Amanda Nunes took the bantamweight title from Miesha Tate with a stunning first-round stoppage at UFC 200 on Saturday night.

Jose Aldo also won a competitive decision over Frankie Edgar to claim the interim featherweight title on the UFC's star-studded landmark show.

Daniel Cormier dominated a decision over Anderson Silva, who took the fight on two days' notice after Jon Jones was dropped from the main event for failing a drug test.

While Brazil's Nunes shocked Tate in the main event, the hulking Lesnar (6-3) was the greatest curiosity on the card.
