NJ School Bus and Truck Collide

NJ School Bus and Truck Collide

A student and an adult chaperone were killed and 45 others were injured after a school bus collided with a dump truck on a New Jersey highway Thursday morning. In photos of the crash scene, the middle school school bus can be seen on its side in the middle of Route 80 near Mount Olive Township, which is about 50 miles west of New York City.

An official tells News 4 the bus came from East Brook Middle School in Paramus, a public school serving roughly 650 students in grades 5-8.

The school bus was left on the median of Interstate 80 in Mount Olive on Thursday with its front end crushed or ripped off. A piece of the front end, with the steering wheel visible, was laying on top of the metal barrier separating the highway from the median. Raw video from the scene: Around a dozen people remain hospitalized, one with critical injuries. This line will be updated as needed.

Mount Olive Mayor Rob Greenbaum, who saw the aftermath of the highway crash from an overpass, described the scene as "horrific".




Police said it is not known how many children were on the bus but they did confirm that several patients were taken to medical centers in the area.

Greenbaum said his heart goes out to the Paramus community. But the parent of one of the students tells News 12 New Jersey that his daughter had such a bad concussion that she gave the hospital the wrong name when she was taken in.

I-80 is closed in both directions.

At least two canine units were searching the woods along the roadside Thursday afternoon, but it wasn't clear why. NBC 4 also reported that a spokesperson said the emergency departments of Dover Hospital and Saint Clare's Denville Hospital have received 10 patients; there was no information yet available on their ages or injuries.
