ALBION – Five students suffered minor injuries Monday afternoon after a vehicle crashed two feet into Ronald L. Sodoma Elementary School on East Avenue, said Roland D. Nenni, chief of police in the Village of Albion.

The students who were in a classroom on the other side of the impacted brick wall were injured after being struck by debris, Nanni said.

The students were transported to various hospitals for treatment, police said. Other students in the classroom were evaluated by school medical staff, police said.

Police on the scene determined the accident occurred around 3 p.m. when one vehicle rear-ended another on the school campus driveway. The first vehicle then continued southbound along the drive and crashed into the school, police said.
