'Horrific' school bus crash in New Jersey

At least two people have reportedly died following an accident involving a school bus and a dump truck on highway Route 80 near Mount Olive, New Jersey, on Thursday, May 17, according to NBC 4 NY.

The crash involving the bus and a truck occurred in Mount Olive Township at about 10:20 a.m., authorities said.

New Jersey state police said all lanes are shut down near mile post 25 in Mount Olive Township. The bus was also detached from its chassis and a piece of the front end, with the steering wheel visible, was laying on top of the metal barrier separating the highway from the median. Raw video from the scene: Around a dozen people remain hospitalized, one with critical injuries. Students on two other buses on the field trip returned to the school Thursday morning and were reunited with their parents, said Paramus police Commissioner Holly Tedesco. This line will be updated as needed.

Greenbaum said he received an emergency response notification that people were possibly ejected in the crash, though he couldn't say from which vehicles. In an interview with WABC, Mount Olive Mayor Rob Greenbaum called the accident "horrific".
