TOBYHANNA, Pa. (AP) - Officials said a school bus with children on board went off the road and crashed into a tree in northeastern Pennsylvania.

It happened around 8:45 a.m. Friday in Tobyhanna. Police said no one was hurt.

Pocono Mountain School District spokeswoman Wendy Frable said nine elementary students from three schools were on the bus at the time of the crash, along with a monitor and the bus driver.

Frable said the students were transported from the scene to their schools and checked by school nurses as a precaution.

Police said it appears the bus went off the road in order to avoid crashing into another vehicle. An investigation is ongoing.
