UPDATE: There were no serious injuries, but more than 40 children were taken to the hospital as a precaution following a school bus accident this morning in Englewood.
The crash occurred around 8:15 a.m. on Englewood Avenue near Elmore Avenue, Police Chief Lawrence Suffern said.
The bus was stopping to pick up passengers when it was rear-ended when a car behind it hit an icy patch and skidded into it, he said.
All of the youngsters were taken to Englewood Hospital and Medical Center as a precaution, the chief said.
“There were no specific injuries reported at that time. There are no summonses to be issued,” said Suffern, who didn’t know which school was involved.
