By Staff | Jun 5, 2010

Four students from Tyler Consolidated Middle School suffered minor injuries after their school bus collided with a van in West Mifflin, Pa., a borough in Allegheny County located southeast of downtown Pittsburgh.

According to sources, the crash happened around 7:30 p.m. on June 4 near the intersection of Pa. Route 837 and Lebanon School Road.

The injured children were transported to Jefferson Hospital in Pittsburgh for the treatment of bumps and bruises.

The remaining 34 children were taken to a West Mifflin fire hall to wait for another bus to take them home.

Officials report the van hydroplaned and hit the bus head-on. The passengers in the van, two adults, suffered more serious injuries and were transported to Pittsburgh hospitals for treatment.

The group of students was returning from an end-of-the-year field trip to Kennywood Park when the crash occurred.

An investigation into the accident is ongoing.
