BRIDGEVILLE, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say at least 16 children suffered minor injuries when three school buses they were riding were involved in a chain-reaction crash.

It happened about 4 p.m. Thursday on Adams Road in Bridgeville. Troopers say three school buses were traveling north when the first bus slowed because of icy road conditions.

Officers say the third bus slid on the ice and rear-ended the second bus, which then hit the first bus.

Authorities say the buses were carrying 3rd- to 5th-grade students from the Woodbridge School District.

Police say at least 16 children were taken to area hospitals. The bus drivers were not hurt.

Troopers say no charges are expected to be filed.
