Students, teachers injured in NJ bus crash transported to 6 hospitals

May 17, 2018 A school bus lies along Interstate 80 in Mount Olive, N.J., after colliding with a dump truck. Two were killed and the rest were injured, some critically.

A child and adult have been killed after a shocking bus crash in the US.

The bus was taking students from East Brook Middle School to Waterloo Village, a historic site depicting a Lenape Indian community and once-thriving port about 5 miles from the crash scene.

Paramus school officials said the borough's schools would be open Friday and that crisis counselors would be on hand.

A sign outside of the East Brook Middle School in Paramus informed people to go to the auditorium for updates on the accident.

"There is an terrible lot we just don't know", he said, adding details of the crash were not being released pending an investigation. A boy on the bus says the bus toppled over and people were "hanging from their seat belts". "Stuff started coming in".

It was also sheared off its undercarriage and a piece of the front end of the bus with the steering wheel visible was lying on top of the guardrail separating the highway from the median.

Donald Lazorchek, who was picking up his son James, said the news was "shocking, very shocking", and he kept "hoping it wasn't my son".

About 10 victims were taken to St. Clare's Dover Hospital and St. Clare's Denville Hospital, according to Communications Director Patty Montgomery.

Hackettstown Medical Center had 10 patients from the crash.

Multiple ambulances were on the scene and police said Route 80 was closed in both directions.

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.

Mount Olive police say westbound traffic is being diverted off Route 80 at exit 26 and to expect heavy delays along Route 46. Gov. Philip D. Murphy said the state police and the Morris County prosecutor's office were investigating the crash, which a police official said was standard after a wreck of such severity.
