MSAD 27 school bus involved in crash

A MSAD 27 bus was involved in a minor traffic accident this afternoon when returning from a middle school field trip in Caribou.

The accident occurred in New Canada, when a car suddenly moved into the lane the bus was traveling.

The school says all students on the bus, as well as the driver, are safe.

Following protocol, several MSAD 27 students were taken to Northern Maine Medical Center for precautionary measures after stating that they hit their heads on the back of the seat. The school says that all parents of the students have been notified.

Despite school not being in session, MSAD 27 will have school social workers on hand tomorrow for any of the students who were shaken up by the incident.
