(AP) - Three preschool students were taken by ambulance to a local hospital where they were treated and released Tuesday after a chain-reaction accident involving a school bus in north Minneapolis.
Police say six people went to North Memorial Medical Center, including the bus driver, the three children and the drivers of two other cars involved.
Minneapolis police spokeswoman Sgt. Tammy Diedrich said none of the injuries were considered life threatening. She had no additional details on the injuries.
The bus was carrying 11 children and four adults, including the driver, said Judy Baker, director of public relations for Parents In Community Action Head Start, a non-profit agency that operates Head Start preschool programs for Hennepin County.
Baker said the eight other children went to Hennepin County Medical Center.
Everyone from the Head Start program had been treated and released by Tuesday afternoon, and some of the children had even returned to school, Baker said.
Diedrich said the crash happened about 9 a.m. Tuesday when an Oldsmobile traveling west on West Broadway struck the bus driving south on Fremont Avenue.
It appeared the Oldsmobile ran a red light and hit the bus, pushing it into oncoming traffic. The driver of the Oldsmobile was one of the adults taken to the hospital.
The bus was then hit by two other vehicles. The driver of one of those vehicles was the third adult taken away by an ambulance.
