    A sedan and yellow school bus collided along a South Jersey road Tuesday afternoon leaving a student and adults hurt and the bus on its side.

    A white BMW sedan crossed the centerline shortly after 2:45 p.m. along the 600 block of Lawrenceville Road (U.S. Route 206) near Hutchinson Drive in Princeton Township, New Jersey and clipped the front bumper of the bus, according to Princeton Police.

    Four people suffered what Princeton Police called non-life-threatening injuries.

    A 16-year-old student; the child's aide, 71-year-old Geneva Smith; and the 44-year-old bus driver, Veronica McKinney were treated at University Medical Center at Plainsboro, according to police.

    The BMW driver, Justin Thomas, 26, of Morris Plains was taken to Capital Health Systems at Fuld, according to police.

    As SkyForce10 hovered overhead shortly after the wreck you could see the yellow bus on its side partially off the road. You could also see a white BMW sedan with what police called heavy front-end damage.

    The bus belongs to Rick Bus Company out of Ewing, New Jersey. The company didn't reveal where the bus was headed to or coming from at the time of the crash.

    Some schools in the area said they didn't know what school the bus was servicing at the time of the crash.

    The exact cause of the wreck remained under investigation Tuesday evening. Mercer County Prosecutors assisted police in the investigation.
