Two school buses have collided at a red light, sending 17 children to several Ohio hospitals.

School Superintendent Valerie Browning says the accident occurred Tuesday in Lebanon, about 25 miles south of Dayton. Browning says four buses filled with eighth-graders were traveling to a vocational school.

Eighth-grader Amanda Shutte says she was aboard the first school bus when it was rear-ended. She says the collision shattered the rear window.

The superintendent says most of the injured students have shoulder and neck pain. Paramedics responding to the accident immobilized two girls using a back brace and neck brace.
