Lakewood school bus crash seriously injures 2

A horrific crash in Lakewood caused a school bus to overturn, seriously injuring two people, according to police.

Officials say a car was turning onto County Line Road near Monmouth Avenue just before 5 p.m. today when it pulled out right in front of the school bus. The bus hit the car and then flipped onto its side, pinning a teenage girl, who was riding her bike, underneath.

Rescue crews worked frantically to free the girl from under the bus. She was airlifted to Jersey Shore Medical Center, along with a passenger in the car. The two drivers were taken to another hospital by ambulance.

Police say that despite some very serious injuries, everyone involved in the accident is expected to survive.
