Eleven children and an adult were injured in a crash involving a bus Monday morning in Bel Air, Maryland State Police said.
Troopers responded around 8:30 a.m. to the area of Emmorton Road and Bel Air South Parkway for the accident, which police said involved a bus and a Honda Accord.
Authorities believe the bus was traveling north on MD 924 when the Honda, which was traveling south, attempted to make a left turn onto Laurel Bush Road and failed to yield to the right of way, causing the bus to crash into the car’s passenger side.
Police said 10 children, who were traveling on a KinderCare 15 passenger minibus, were taken to an area hospital. The driver of the Honda and a 1-year-old passenger were taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore.
The conditions of all those injured were not immediately clear. A representative for the University of Maryland Medical System said six patients, all minors, were treated for minor injuries at the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air and that most of them had already been discharged.
A representative for Johns Hopkins Medicine said Monday morning that he was unable to confirm whether the hospital was treating individuals injured in the crash.
Harford County school system spokesperson Jillian Lader said the bus did not belong to the school system, but did not specify whether the bus was carrying Harford County Public School students. She declined to provide details about the children onboard.
No roads were closed for the investigation.
