A school bus crashed into a wooded area on the side of a Camden County road Thursday morning, prompting a large response from emergency personnel.
The bus crashed on the 100 block of Cedarville Road in Sicklerville around 7:35 a.m., causing the hood of the vehicle to fall off as debris from the crash littered the side of the road. Only two adults – the driver and an aide – were on the bus at the time, Winslow Township Police Chief George Smith told NBC10.
The vehicle apparently first hit a pole, Smith said, before coming to a rest in front of a tree. The women were airlifted to a hospital with what appeared to be serious injuries, he added.
Firefighters could be seen going in and out the back of the bus after the crash.
