7 students taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after Del. school bus crash


SEAFORD, Delaware — Delaware State Police say seven students were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after an SUV rear-ended a school bus.

Police say the crash occurred on Sussex Highway just south of Cannon Road on Monday morning. The Seaford School District School bus carrying 35 students was stopped at a traffic light and was beginning to proceed with traffic when a Chevrolet Equinox hit the rear of the bus.

The bus driver and 17-year-old driver of the SUV were not injured, but police say seven students ranging from 12 to 17 years old were taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital after an evaluation.

The driver of the SUV was cited for careless driving and failure to have insurance in possession. Police say the crash did not appear to be weather related.
