NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. (AP) — A child and two adults were hospitalized in critical condition after a school bus collided with a tree service truck on the way to an elementary school Wednesday morning in upstate New York, police said.
Deputy Police Chief Michael Farbent in the Hudson Valley town of New Windsor said a little girl and the drivers of the truck and bus were extricated from the vehicles and hospitalized after the crash at 8:21 a.m. on Route 207. Their names were not released.
Farbent said seven children walked off the bus and were evaluated at a hospital and released. He said the girl who was hospitalized in “critical but stable” condition was sitting behind the bus driver.
The tree service truck crossed the center line and collided with the Washingtonville Central School District bus, Farbent said. The school district said in a statement that the bus was carrying students to Little Britain Elementary School and parents were notified.
