Police say nine children have been taken to hospitals after their school bus drove into a light post in a southern New Jersey parking lot.
Harrison Township Police Lt. David Wingate says none of the injuries are considered life threatening.
Wingate says the bus pulled into a parking lot next to Pleasant Valley School then struck the light standard just before 9 a.m. Thursday.
Thirty-four students were on board.
Nine were taken to hospitals and the rest walked next door to their school to be checked out by a school nurse. The school serves fourth through sixth graders.
The crash is under investigation.
