An Anne Arundel County, Maryland, school bus was involved in a crash on Route 198 near Bald Eagle Drive Tuesday afternoon, sending several students and the bus driver to a hospital.
A spokesman for the school system said the bus was coming from Meade Middle School and was carrying 23 people at about 3:15 p.m. when it was involved in a crash with two other vehicles and went off the road and into a tree. It’s not clear yet who crashed into whom.
The police told WTOP that four students, the driver and the bus aide, as well as the driver of one of the other cars, were taken to a hospital with injuries officers characterized as non-life threatening.
Dave Dildine, in the WTOP Traffic Center, said the crash involved “at least two other vehicles,” and the bus went off the road into a tree, as the other cars crashed into each other.
Route 198 was closed between the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and Route 32 for about two hours.
