6 hurt in school bus crash

By Washington Post editors

Updated, 5:49 p.m.: Six and as many as seven students from Northwood High School in Montgomery County, were taken to at least one local hospital with minor injuries after their school bus was involved in a wreck with a Toyota Camry on Friday afternoon in the Glenmont area of Silver Spring, officials said.

The students had complained of pains in their necks and backs, said Capt. Oscar Garcia, a county Fire and Rescue Service spokesman.

The driver of the car was treated for trauma and serious injuries that were not life-threatening, Garcia said. The bus driver suffered minor injuries. Five other students on the bus weren't hurt, Garcia said. Montgomery County police said initial investigation indicates the driver of the Toyota was at fault, but no charges have been filed.

The crash occurred just before 3 p.m. at Georgia Avenue and Hathaway Drive, Garcia said.
