School bus crashes near eastern Pa. amusement park

Police say a school bus has crashed on its way back from an amusement park in eastern Pennsylvania and more than a dozen students have suffered minor injuries.

The bus collided with a car Friday evening near the on-ramp to Interstate 78, on the border of South Whitehall and Lower Macungie townships.

Authorities say the bus had 30 students aboard and was among three taking a group of Pennridge High School freshmen home from a class trip to Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom. School officials say one adult and 13 students were taken to a hospital but their injuries are minor.

Police say the bus driver will be cited for failure to yield to oncoming traffic.
