Authorities are investigating a crash involving three vehicles, including a school bus, in Framingham on Thursday.

The bus was carrying nine children heading to the Brophy elementary school, and none of the children were injured, said Framingham Fire Chief Walter Hicks. He said after they were checked out medically, the children boarded another bus and were taken to school.

The crash is under investigation by Framingham police.

Hicks said firefighters responded to the intersection of Water and Brooks streets around 8:45 a.m. to find the school bus, a pickup truck, and a passenger vehicle had crashed. The school bus was hit in the rear while the two passenger vehicles collided nearly head-on, Hicks said.


The pickup truck rolled over, but the driver managed to crawl out of the wreckage, Hicks said.

The three drivers were each taken to area hospitals with varying injuries, none of which were considered life-threatening. One of the drivers was flown by medical helicopter to UMass Medical in Worcester, Hicks said.

No further information is currently available.
