According to police, two cars collided with one another and the bus, in turn, then struck the two vehicles around 8:15 a.m.

The crash took place on Concord Avenue near Spring Street, just off a Route 2 exit ramp.

Dunn said the three students were taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure. Their parents have been notified and have been reunited with their children.

“Teachers and staff are aware of which students were involved in the incident and are providing support as necessary,” Dunn also said.
