– A school bus full of kids collided with a truck in Brandywine and sent five people to the hospital.

The accident happened Friday afternoon as the bus was dropping off students from Benjamin D. Foulois Creative and Performing Arts Academy in Suitland.
All of the injuries are considered minor, but it was a frightening ordeal for the students on board.

At least 15 students were riding on the bus as the driver attempted to merge onto Crain Highway (Route 301) off of Dyson Road.

The bus collided with a truck and ended up crashing into a tree. Glass and debris scattered across the roadway after the crash.
One young girl, a student, was among those taken to the hospital.
The bus driver and an aide along with two people from the truck were also transported to the hospital. Prince George’s County fire officials describe all of the injuries as non-life-threatening.
A hazmat unit was called out to the scene because inside of the trailer of the truck was a race car, which had a small nitrous oxide leak as a result of the crash.
