7 Children Injured in School Bus Accident
Seven children suffered minor injuries in a school bus accident on the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey Tuesday morning. The bus veered off the road and crashed into the guard rail before ending up in the woods alongside the road.
Six ambulances arrived at the scene to assist the injured children. All 14 children riding the bus were taken to local area hospitals for precautionary measures, although only seven of them seemed to have suffered injuries.
The school bus accident is currently under investigation, and at the moment, the exact cause is unknown. However, reports seem to indicate that another vehicle may have collided with the bus, causing it to veer off course.
The bus involved in the accident is registered to Chestnut Ridge Transportation Inc, operating out of Spring Valley, New Jersey. The school bus’ ultimate destination was not disclosed.
