Four Children Hurt When Truck Hits Staten Island School Bus, Officials Say
ELTINGVILLE — Four children were hurt when a pickup truck hit a school bus, flipping it over Wednesday morning, officials said.
The children's bus headed south on Preson Avenue when the eastbound Nissan pickup truck slammed into it at Oakdale Street about 7:40 a.m., police sources said.
"I heard a big bash and then I woke up," said Maria Marteala, who lives on Oakdale. "The bus had fallen to the side. Just to see people moving inside was a good sign."
Parents of those kids on board were notified of the crash, a DOE spokeswoman added.
Both vehicles remained on the scene and neither driver was immediately charged in the crash, a police spokeswoman said.
The NYPD was still investigating the crash.
