Eight people were injured, one critically, following a chain-reaction crash that involved a school bus and six other vehicles in Camden County Wednesday morning.
The crash happened at about 9:30 a.m. on the Black Horse Pike near Chews Landing Road in Glendora, New Jersey.
The crash involved a school bus and six other vehicles.
Authorities say eight people were injured. Three people were taken to Cooper University Hospital; one is in critical condition, another was initially listed in critical condition but was upgraded to stable condition and a third is listed in stable condition.
Three others were taken to Kennedy Health System in Stratford and two more were taken to Underwood Hospital in Woodbury.
According to reports, the occupants of the school bus were senior citizens who were en-route to a senior center. A driver and five others were aboard the school bus.
Police say a Ford pickup truck, a 2009 Mitsubishi Galant and a 2000 Kia were traveling south on the Black Horse Pike and stopped in traffic when the school bus, which was also travelling south, struck the rear of the Kia.
The Kia then struck the Mitsubishi, which struck the pickup truck. The collision forced the Mitsubishi into the northbound lane where it struck a 2004 Ford Taurus and a 2003 Toyota Camry. Ladders that were detached from the pickup truck also struck a stopped 2011 Chevrolet pickup truck.
