HORROR IN NJ: School Bus & Dump Truck Collide On Route 80; Fatalities Reported, Many Injured

A New Jersey prosecutor's office says the crash of a dump truck and a school bus taking children to a field trip has killed multiple people.

The school bus is said to have fallen at Route 80 near Mount Olive Township, which is about 50 miles west of New York City.

The injured were transported to six different hospitals, and some are undergoing surgery.

Police declined to release details about how the crash happened, but it occurred on a stretch of highway, just past the exit for Waterloo Village, where the group was headed.

Officials are reportedly looking into the possibility the bus driver became separated from the other buses, missed the exit and attempted to make an illegal u-turn moments before the bus was rear-ended by the dump truck.

A Mendez-owned dump truck driven by a driver police say had a suspended license struck and killed a French fashion stylist in NY in January 2011, according to court records.

The bus was owned by the school district and equipped with seat belts, according to Paramus schools superintendent Michele Robinson. Murphy said the driver of the truck was alive and at the hospital, but officials didn't reveal his condition. The truck was registered to Mendez Trucking, of Belleville, and had "In God We Trust" emblazoned on the back of it.

Rescue workers can be seen administering aid to dozens of children injured in a horrific school bus crash on Route 80.

Trump gambles on different path to rein in Iran's nuclear ambitions
Trump officials also complained about clauses in the deal that would have relaxed restrictions on Iran after about a decade. We will remind, the White house released a list of demands the U.S.to Iran.

Injured passengers were being treated at about a half-dozen hospitals in the region, Murphy said, including 21 who were taken to Morristown Medical Center and 10 who were transported to Hackettstown Medical Center.

One student, speaking outside Morristown Medical Center, described a truck hitting from behind before the bus flipped.

"There's an incredible emergency response from throughout Morris County and by State Police".

Students at East Brook Middle School, a public school serving roughly 650 students in grades 5 through 8, were picked up early from school - they found out about the accident when other students were crying in the halls.

Thuy Nguyen, a nurse from Paramus, was leaving the school with her eighth-grade son who was back at the school taking a standardized test and not in the bus She said she rushed to the school after hearing the news. "It's tragic", he told reporters.

The National Transportation Safety Board also is monitoring the crash, officials said.

All evening school activities are cancelled for this evening and tomorrow evening.
