Multiple Serious Injuries Reported In School Bus Crash In Mount Olive

- A school bus and a dump truck were involved in a crash on Route 80 in Mount Olive, New Jersey Thursday morning, according to NJ State Police.

The news of the deadly bus crash caused a chaotic scene inside the school as frantic parents rushed in to pick up their children.

The front end of the red dump truck was mangled in the wreck, which took place about 50 miles (80 kilometres) west of NY.

Pictures from the scene showed the wreck of the yellow American school bus on its side, lying across crash barriers on the central reservation.

Faltings said the front of the dump truck appeared to have been sheared off and the school bus was "ripped off its frame" after hitting a guardrail and flipping over.

Another parent, Kathy Lafaso said, "It's a disgusting scene", adding she would not let her child go on any more field trips.

Mount Olive Mayor Rob Greenbaum who was observing the rescue efforts at the scene said that the bus was "mangled" with its chassis detached from the rest of the vehicle.

Gov. Phil Murphy says Thursday's crash killed a student and a teacher.

Some of the children were inside the bus and some outside when first responders arrived, according to Jeff Paul, director of the Morris County Office of Emergency Management. Morristown Medical Center and Hackettstown also received patients, though it wasn't clear how many.

"The bus flew off of the wheels, but it hit the metal thing on the side of the highway", fifth-grader Theo Ancevski said.

Donald Lazorchek, who was picking up his son James, said the news was "shocking, very shocking", and he kept "hoping it wasn't my son".

"My heart just dropped, You hear the name of the school..." she said before trailing off. At least one person died in the accident and several others are injured.

The students were on the way to Waterloo Village from the middle school when the collision happened.

East Brook Middle School will be open on Friday, with counselors available for students, officials said.

The exact extent of the injuries remained unknown.

A school bus that collided with a dump truck in New Jersey had markings for a school district that had a scheduled class trip to a nearby historic site.

A Mendez-owned dump truck driven by a driver police say had a suspended license struck and killed a French fashion stylist in Manhattan in January 2011, according to court records.

The New Jersey State Department of Health's disaster team was on the scene to assist with family reunification and counseling.
