According to MyCentralJersey, a New Jersey Transit bus was hit by a school bus, causing a child minor injuries in East Brunswick, New Jersey, on Monday morning.

Details of Bus Accident

A New Jersey Transit Bus was parked in the right lane of Route 18 near Eggers Street, waiting for passengers to get on and off at around 8:52 a.m. when the injury accident occurred. A school bus headed toward Netivot, a Jewish day school, struck the back of the transit bus.

MyCentralJersey reports that out of the 15 children on board the school bus, only one child was injured. A four-year-old boy reportedly sustained a broken leg in the bus crash. The school bus transported all of the child passengers to the hospital for their parents to pick them up.

Both bus drivers were uninjured in the accident, reports MyCentralJersey. No charges have been filed thus far, and police are investigating the incident.
