TAUNTON, Mass. (AP) — A school bus driver and two students suffered minor injuries when their bus crashed into a box truck that swerved in front of them on Route 140 in Taunton, according to Massachusetts State Police.
Police say the bus was headed northbound carrying 35 teenagers when a truck suddenly changed lanes ahead of it Wednesday morning. The bus, which was headed to Bristol County Agricultural High School, crashed into the back of the truck.
The 57-year-old driver and two students were taken to Morton Hospital in Taunton with minor injuries, police said. The driver of the box truck and a passenger were not injured.
Police said the truck was swerving to avoid a flatbed truck that had stopped in a line of traffic waiting to enter Route 24. The box truck also swiped the side of the flatbed as it changed lanes. There were no injuries reported in that collision.
The driver of the box truck was cited for following too closely and for making an unsafe lane change. Police identified the driver as a 21-year-old New Bedford man but did not release his name.
