7 injured after car crashes into school bus in Dundalk
DUNDALK, Md. (WBFF) - Seven people, including four students, suffered injuries after a crash involving a school bus on Dundalk's North Point Boulevard Friday afternoon.
The 25-year-old driver of a Dodge Stratus, which collided with the bus, was originally reported to be in critical condition; Baltimore County officials said later that he and a 26-year-old female passenger both have non-life-threatening injuries.
The crash happened at about 2:43 p.m. at North Point Boulevard and Trappe Road.
The bus was carrying one school bus assistant and 27 students from Patapsco High School.
The bus assistant and four students were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
The initial investigation shows the Dodge Stratus was driving south on North Point Boulevard when it struck the driver side of the school bus. The bus was making a left turn onto North Point at the time.
Both the Dodge driver and his passenger, who were not identified by late Friday, had to be cut out of the vehicle.
The factors contributing to this crash remain under investigation.
Students self-evacuated, reported Baltimore County EMS officials. Three medics were on scene.
