Four people, including one student of Delaware’s School for the Deaf, were injured Friday morning when a school bus and a dump truck collided in Wilmington. 

None of the injuries were life-threatening, said James Jobes, spokesman for the city fire department.

The crash occurred about 7:45 a.m. in the city’s Southbridge section as the Christina School District bus was en route to the School for the Deaf, Jobes said.

The student, whose age was not provided, was taken to the DuPont Hospital for Children, Jobes said. Also hurt were the truck driver, who was trapped and had to be extricated, as well as the bus driver and his aide, Jobes said.
