NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - Three students were hospitalized with minor injuries following a school bus crash Monday afternoon on Route 27, at the border with Franklin Township, police officials said.

The four-car pileup started when a 17-year-old New Brunswick motorist traveling southbound on Route 27 rear-ended a 1999 Infiniti trying to make a left turn, according to Franklin Township Police Lt. Phil Rizzo.

That car then veered into oncoming traffic and hit the bus head-on as it was traveling northbound on Route 27, Rizzo said.

Once the bus was hit, it was forced into the right lane, Rizzo said, hitting a 2008 Infiniti. Ten occupants were on the school bus, and three of them were hospitalized after they complained of pain.

The driver of the 1999 Infiniti was also transported to a local hospital after complaining of pain. Authorities did not provide the name of the New Brunswick driver.
