Six Buffalo Public Schools students and a school bus driver were hurt Monday in an accident with another vehicle, according to a spokesman for the Buffalo Police Department.

None appeared to suffer injuries that were life-threatening, said Michael J. DeGeorge, the police department spokesman. All but one child was treated at the scene by ambulance personnel, according to police.

Police said the incident happened just before 5 p.m. at the corner of Grider Street and Northland Avenue on the East Side.
