A school bus full of children was "obliterated" when it collided with a dump truck on Interstate 80 in New Jersey. A photo of the accident shows the bus laying on its side next to the center divider with the entire front section ripped off. There are multiple ambulances and dozens of emergency officials on site. There are reports that two people, one adult chaperone, and one child, died in the accident.
According to ABC7, people have been transported from the scene to a local hospital, and at least two of those injuries are reported to be life-threatening. It is unknown how many people were on the bus at the time of the crash, but a photo posted by NBC New York on Twitter shows a large number of people standing on the highway median around the bus. The bus was reportedly carrying students from East Brook Middle School in Paramus.
