Two people on the bus were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, said a police officer on the scene.

A boy who was playing nearby when the crash happened said, the sedan was traveling at a high rate of speed when it struck the bus.

The bus belongs to the Council Rock School District, no word on whether students were on the bus at the time of the crash.

Fire crews from the Northampton Fire Company were called to the scene shortly before 4 p.m. along with ambulances from the Tri-Hampton Rescue Squad.

    agreed… im sure if the students saw a big yellow bus, they’d stop. obviously the bus driver wasnt paying attention. and what does a little boy know what fast is? does he drive yet? didn’t think so.
