Eight special education students headed for St. Lawrence Academy School 86 were taken to Children's Hospital this morning after their school bus was struck in the rear by another vehicle on Military Road at Glor Street.
Seven of the eight students were discharged from Children's shortly after noon, and the eighth was seeking further treatment in the emergency room. It was unclear whether he would be admitted.
Hospital and fire officials described the injuries as relatively minor. Students suffered bumps and bruises, and some complained of neck pain, authorities said. The accident occurred at about 9 a.m. The investigation is continuing.
