Multiple injuries reported after school bus, dump truck crash in New Jersey

"From what I saw, the red truck was destroyed, but the bus appeared worse", Manuel Absalon, a tourist from Mexico driving by the crash site, told WNBC-TV.

Mount Olive Mayor Rob Greenbaum described the crash scene as "horrific".

Greenbaum said his heart goes out to the Paramus community.

It wasn't immediately known how many people were on the bus or in the truck.

The chassis is lying across several lanes of traffic, the rest of the bus is resting on its side in the median of I-80.

Mount Olive Township is about 50 miles west of New York City.

The injured were being rushed to at least two area hospitals.

A school bus and dump truck collided on a New Jersey highway Thursday, injuring multiple people, according to police. He told HLN Thursday there were possible ejections in the crash.

The tragic accident took place just before 10:30 a.m. crash on Route 80 near exit 25.

Seventh-grader Alejandro Garcia says that fellow students who had brothers and sisters on the bus started crying after news of the crash reached the school.

A spokeswoman for Morristown Medical Center also said they received patients from the accident and about ten victims were taken to St. Clare's Dover Hospital and St. Clare's Denville Hospital, according to Communications Director Patty Montgomery. Two other buses not involved in the accident returned to the school, and students were being dismissed.

"They were young kids", he said.

The front of the bus was barely recognizable, and a mangled chunk of machinery spread from the highway shoulder lane through the guardrail and into the grassy median, where police and first responders tended to children.

St. Joseph's Health public relations manager Pam Garretson said two children were being evaluated in the emergency room.
