Eight hospitalized after bus crash in Hamilton

HAMILTON — Seven students from St. Gregory the Great Academy were sent to the hospital Monday after a bus crashed on a side road in Hamilton.
A representative from Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in Hamilton said the seven children and one adult hospitalized after the accident were expected to be released tonight. By 6 p.m. two of the children had been released and a third would be released soon, the representative said.
School principal Jason Briggs said the bus driver, who was hospitalized, swerved to avoid a deer before ending up in a ditch off of Merrick Road around 3 p.m.
Briggs said his office notified the parents before he left to visit the scene. He said the Chesterfield bus accident, which killed one 11-year old girl and and injured more than a dozen others last February, flashed through his mind.
“All I can say is the children’s guardian angels were with them,” he said.
