Children involved in school bus crash are treated to pizza in Millstone
What started out as a scary moment in time for grade school students in Monmouth County ended with a slice of pizza, a way of taking their mind off an accident that occurred on Monday afternoon.
A school bus carrying 16 students in Kindergarten through 5th grade and a Dodge Ram pickup truck crashed on Millstone Road at Sweetman Lane in Millstone around 1:40 pm which brought down a utility pole and a transformer on top of the bus.
The Millstone Fire Department said that the children from the Millstone Elementary and Millstone Primary schools were evaluated but only the driver was hospitalized and Jersey Shore University Medical Center for treatment of non life-threatening injuries.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation by New Jersey State Police.
Millstone schools dismissed class early in anticipation of Monday’s storm.
