NORTH EAST, Md. — A school bus crash in Maryland sent three students to a hospital.
Maryland State Police said in a statement that the bus was rear-ended Tuesday morning in Cecil County while the driver helped a student board. There were 27 children on the bus at the time and police say the three children taken to a hospital ranged in age from 8 to 10.
Police say the driver of the vehicle that hit the bus was also taken to a hospital and they are investigating the possibility that his use of a cellphone contributed to the crash. The bus was parked on the shoulder without flashing red signals activated when police say the vehicle went off the road and hit the rear of the bus.
No charges have been filed.
