A school bus carrying elementary students was involved in a crash in Chester County Wednesday, May 18, school officials said.

Several East Vincent Elementary School students were left with minor bumps and bruises following the crash around 8 a.m. on Stoney Run Road and West Bridge Street in East Vincent Township, according to the 6abc and school officials.

A driver struck the bus, then drove through a fence, WFMZ reports. Rescue crews reportedly extricated the unidentified woman from the car before taking her to an area hospital in unknown condition.

"A few of the students were released to their parents at the scene of the accident, and others were transported back to the school by a substitute bus," Superintendent Dr. Will Stout said in a statement posted to the school district's website.

"Ed Smith, Principal of East Vincent Elementary School, also rode the bus back to the school with the remaining students, who were examined by their school nurse," Stout added.

The superintendent said he will keep parents, guardians, students, and the community informed of any developments.

The school district added that it will contact the transportation company and request a copy of the incident report.
