MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Two elementary school students were treated at City Hospital in Martinsburg after a sport utility vehicle struck the bus they were riding Wednesday morning.
The students, who attend Potomack Intermediate and Bedington Elementary schools, complained of head or neck pain and were taken by ambulance to the hospital. They were released about 10:30 a.m., according to Berkeley County Schools spokesperson Jaimee Borger.
West Virginia State Police investigated the accident, which Borger said was believed to be the fifth collision involving a school bus since classes began in August.
"It's five too many," Borger said.
Borger said the SUV reportedly backed into the rear of the bus that was carrying 19 students while it was stopped at the intersection of Hanshew Lane and Atlas Street in the Berkeley Village subdivision at 8:12 a.m.
