    Eleven students were taken to the hospital. Six ambulances were needed, including some from neighboring towns. Firefighters say that there were about 50 students from the Woodland Elementary School on the bus at the time.

    One thing that they say helped out greatly to calm everyone was that a teacher from the school saw the crash and ran out and onto the bus to comfort the children.

    All of the ones that were injured are between 8 and 10 years old.

    The driver of that car had minor injuries and was also taken to the hospital. It’s unclear if that driver will be cited.
