Authorities investigate cause of school bus crash that killed teacher, student

A teacher and student on a school field trip were killed Thursday when a school bus collided with a dump truck and flipped over in Mount Olive Township in Morris County, New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy said.

Rescue workers can be seen administering aid to dozens of children injured in a horrific school bus crash on Route 80.

Did the driver miss the exit that the two other buses seem likely to have taken, given the fact that they reached Waterloo Village? He told reporters he escaped through an emergency door on the bus. "All other individuals injured in this crash have been transported to local hospitals for care".

NY reports that the bus came from East Brook Middle School in Paramus, a public school serving roughly 650 students in grades 5-8. It was heading to a field trip at Waterloo Village, a historic site in Stanhope.

"They were young kids", he said.

The two buses that were not involved in the crash were returned to the school and the students were reconnected with their families and dismissed, said Holly Tedesco, Paramus Council president and police commissioner. A boy on the bus says the bus toppled over and people were "hanging from their seat belts".

A red dump truck with severe front-end damage was at the scene, about 50 miles outside of New York City.

Thuy Nguyen, a nurse from Paramus, said she rushed to the school, where her son was taking a test after hearing the news.

Mendez Trucking has about 40 drivers and trucks, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

A man at the front desk of a company connected to a license plate on the dump truck said it's not clear what happened, but he did confirm the driver left the facility Thursday morning and got into the accident.

Also it is not known how many of them were injured.

Company officials were not immediately available for comment.
The National Transportation Safety Board, which investigates accidents involving buses, was gathering information but was not investigating the collision, it said on Twitter. School bus crashes killed 902 people in other vehicles over that span.
