MATTHEWS, N.C. (AP) - A mechanical issue on a school bus led to five middle school students injured by smoking anti-freeze, one critically.

The Charlotte Observer (https://bit.ly/1RymUtb ) reports the bus was from Porter Ridge Middle School and the incident took place Monday afternoon. Officials say the bus had an issue, causing antifreeze to be dispersed in the passenger area and smoke to fill the cabin.

One seventh-grade girl was taken to Carolinas Medical Center after complaining of a burning sensation on her legs. Two students were taken to the hospital by their parents and the other two didn’t go to the hospital. Their conditions are unknown.

The rest of the students were put onto another bus and taken home.
