WARREN COUNTY — Two students were taken to the hospital after a school bus crash in Maineville, Ohio Friday morning.

A Little Miami schools bus on its way to the elementary school was involved in the accident, according to Little Miami Local Schools.

The crash happened near the fire station on State Route 22 when a box truck swerved across the center line to avoid a collision and side swiped the bus, according to Hamilton police. Two students and the bus driver were transported to the hospital with minor injuries, police said.

Students not hurt in the crash were taken to school via another school bus, Little Miami schools said. In total, 24 students were on the bus at the time of the crash, the school district said.

“Upon their arrival to LMES, these students will be met with mental health support and will have time to decompress before going into the classroom,” Little Miami Schools wrote on its Facebook page.

Police did not yet have information on whether anyone would be cited in the crash.
