NEWBURGH, Maine (WABI) - A crash between a pick up truck and a school bus Friday morning injured nine people including eight children.

Officials tell TV5 they responded to the crash along Western Avenue near Chapman Road shortly before 7 a.m.

A total of eighteen kids were on the school bus, eight of them were sent to the hospital with minor injuries.

The passenger of a white pick up that rear ended the bus was also sent to the hospital with minor injuries.

”It’s always a scary situation when it’s kids involved and a school bus, for everyone involved, for the parents, for the kids, even for the first responders. Obviously no one wants to show up and see a kid who’s hurt,” said Corporal Stephen Marko of the Penobscot County Sheriffs Office.

Police say the school bus was trying to make a stop to pick up a child when the bus was hit by the truck.

The crash is still under investigation.
