STATE LINE, Pa. — A pickup truck rear-ended a Greencastle-Antrim School District bus on Williamsport Pike Monday just before 3 p.m., Pennsylvania State Police said.

Two students were taken to Chambersburg (Pa.) Hospital with minor injuries, and the juvenile driver of the Ford Ranger also was taken to that hospital with minor injuries, according to Trooper Rowe from the Chambersburg barrack.

"It was neck and back pains, but it wasn't anything significant," Rowe said, adding that the teenagers were walking and talking.

The school bus had stopped to drop off a student when the collision occurred near East Weaver Road, Rowe said.

The bus sustained little damage and dropped off its 28 students after crews cleared the scene, he said.

The pickup truck was towed.

Rowe, who said school officials arrived at the scene before police, declined to comment on whether the truck's driver would be cited for the crash.
