Students Injured in Bus Accident in Massachusetts

January 5, 2012

Connecticut students on a ski trip have suffered minor injuries in a bus collision.

Police say two buses were traveling north on Route 140 when one bus rear-ended the other around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. One adult and eight minors were taken to the hospital.

Holly Singleton, assistant headmaster and principal of Woodstock Academy in Connecticut, says the students were on a trip organized by the local parks and recreation department. She says a parent told her a few students suffered nose bleeds. Singleton says the trip is not sponsored by the school and that she doesn’t know how many people were on board.

The Hartford Courant reports that Massachusetts State Police are investigating the accident.
