A Boston Public School bus monitor was taken to a area hospital following a crash involving a school bus in Jamaica Plain Monday, officials said.

The incident happened around 7:37 a.m. near the intersections of South and Bussey streets, officials said. The crash involved the school bus and a pickup truck, Boston police said.

In an e-mail, Boston Public Schools spokesman Dan O’Brien wrote that one student was on board and was not hurt.

The adult bus monitor on the vehicle was taken to a Boston hospital as a precaution, he wrote.

The bus was on the way to the Boston Higashi School in Randolph, a private special education school, he wrote.
