    A school bus crash in Delaware has injured two students and the driver of a car.

    Delaware State Police said in a statement that the crash happened Monday morning at the intersection of Harmony Road and Ruthar Drive in Newark. Police say the bus was carrying about 30 students from the Las Americas Aspira Academy in Newark when it crashed with a car.

    Police say the driver of the car and two children -- girls ages 6 and 9 -- who were on the bus were taken to hospitals with injuries that aren't thought to be life-threatening.
