'Dozen' Ambulances Rush to NJ Highway Crash Between School Bus, Dump Truck

The horror crash happened on Interstate 90 in Mount Olive, NJ., 50 miles west of New York City, with the fatality reported to have been an adult.

The front of the bus was barely recognizable, and a mangled chunk of machinery spread from the highway shoulder lane through the guardrail and into the grassy median, where police and first responders tended to children.

An official told NBC 4 that the bus was carrying Eastbrook Middle School 5th graders from Paramus, New Jersey.

This is a breaking news story.

Morristown Medical Center and Hackettstown also received patients, though they have not said how many.

Mount Olive Mayor Rob Greenbaum, who saw the aftermath of the crash from an overpass, described the scene as "horrific".

A sign posted outside the school informed people to go to the auditorium for updates on the accident. The front end of the bus appeared to be crushed or ripped off, and it was completely sheared off its undercarriage.


A spokeswoman for a local hospital told CNN that she believed two students had been admitted to St. Joseph's University Medical Center in Paterson, New Jersey.

A tragic highway crash has left least two people dead and many injured, according to new reports.

Traffic was initially shut down on I-80 in both directions near the site of the accident.

The chassis is lying across several lanes of traffic, the rest of the bus is resting on its side in the median of I-80.

A school bus that collided with a dump truck in New Jersey had markings for a school district that had a scheduled class trip to a nearby historic site.

Gov. Murphy has also been briefed on the situation, and the National Transportation Safety Board says it is gathering information on the crash.

About 10 victims were taken to St. Clare's Dover Hospital and St. Clare's Denville Hospital, according to Communications Director Patty Montgomery. It's a popular spot for school trips.
