(John Del Signore) A handful of special needs children had an eventful commute to school this morning in Staten Island after their bus careened over onto its side during a crash at the intersection of Oakdale Street and Preston Avenue. The driver was injured, and one little girl had a bruise on her face, but officials say none of the injuries were serious. All of the children were taken to the hospital for observation, as a precaution.
The bus was tipped over in a collision with the driver of a black pickup truck who was taking his teenage son to school. The driver also sustained minor injuries. "They all seemed OK except for one little girl who was crying," a witness tells SI Live. "She had a bruise on her face."
