School Bus Crash in N.J. Sends 14 Students to Hospitals

A school bus and tractor-trailer collided in Gloucester County, New Jersey, on Jan. 8, reported nbcphiladelphia.com.

It was reported that the bus driver allegedly made a left turn, turning in front of a Herrell Trucking Company tractor-trailer. The vehicles struck each other, but it was not a head-on collision, because the driver of the tractor-trailer drove to the right and into the woods, according to the article.

The driver of the tractor-trailer and 14 students were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

The tractor-trailer was transporting sand, overturned and leaked diesel fuel, wrote philly.com. This prompted a response by the Gloucester County Haz-Mat Assessment Unit.

The bus was owned by Holcomb Bus Co. and was carrying 22 people from the Gloucester County Institute of Technology.

NTSB was notified of the crash.
