The front end of the bus was damaged, while a black SUV was heavily damaged on the driver’s side.

Brockton Public Schools said in a statement that two elementary school students from Arnone School were in the bus.

They were checked out at the scene and cleared to go home with their parents.

The bus driver and four teenagers inside the SUV were hospitalized, mostly with cuts and bruises.

One of the passengers in the SUV was apparently ejected from the vehicle and landed on resident Kim McGrath’s lawn.

“My neighbor brought over a blanket to the girl, because she said she flew out of the car,” said McGrath.

No further information is currently available.

  1. “…the teens…” How about raising the driving age to 21? They are not fully developed adults under age 21 so why are we issuing driver licenses under age 21? and no, we shouldn’t send children to war. Perhaps basic training and let them serve /train in their homeland but we shouldn’t ship them off before they are an adult. They should grow up and learn to use their brain before handling weapons especially the wheel in a motor vehicle. Kids belong off the streets after dark and mandatory edu until an associate’s degree is earned and a grade “C” is average so we shouldn’t discriminate against the average student by offering edu to those who are above average. Often higher IQs lack God given common sense so keep the bowl balanced. IMO
