Nearly 40 University of Delaware students were injured when the bus they were riding overturned on a patch of roadway just south of Wilmington, late Thursday evening.

The incident started when a tractor trailer smashed into the bus at an intersection, State Police Cpl. John Day said, in CBS News. Thirty-nine aboard the bus — all college students between the ages of 18 and 22 — were hurt, and nine were taken to the hospital for treatment.

The injuries weren't life-threatening, police said.

The students belonged to the Phi Sigma Sigma Sorority and were on route to a party, the University of Delaware's public relations office said.

The condition or fate of the tractor trailer driver wasn't clear in the report.
