A school bus full of middle schoolers collided with a dump truck and slammed off a New Jersey highway this morning, police said.
Photos from the chaotic scene show the school bus on its side in the median of Route 80 near Mount Olive Township.
Injuries were reported but the extent of the injuries were not immediately clear, according to the police department in Mount Olive Township, which is about 50 miles west of New York City.
Morristown Medical Center has received an unknown number of patients from the accident, a medical center spokeswoman said.
The bus was from East Brook Middle School in Paramus, New Jersey, Paramus Police Chief Ken Ehrenberg said.
About 650 fifth- to eighth-grade students attend the school, according to its website.
Multiple ambulances were on the scene and police said Route 80 was closed in both directions.
