Students Taken To Hospital After School Bus Collides With Car In Aroostook County
Several students riding in a school bus in New Canada were taken to the hospital for evaluation after the bus collided with a car Tuesday afternoon.
No students suffered serious injuries, but some were taken to Northern Maine Medical Center after reporting that they hit their heads on the back of the seat, Maine School Administrative District 27 said on its website.
The accident occurred at about 2:15 p.m. “when a car suddenly moved into the lane the bus was traveling,” the website said.
MSAD 27 schools are located in Fort Kent. The students involved in the accident were returning from a middle school field trip in Caribou.
The fire department said the female driver of the car exited the vehicle on her own. It did not appear that she had suffered any major injuries, but she was transported by ambulance to NMMC.
The driver of the school bus was not hurt in the accident.
The crash remains under investigation.
