O’FALLON, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say a school bus and car have collided in suburban St. Louis, sending five students and both drivers to hospitals with injuries that a school official described as minor.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the crash happened Monday morning in O’Fallon. Fort Zumwalt School District spokeswoman Laura Wagner characterized the injuries as minor.

She says four students were taken to a hospital by ambulance and that the fifth went with a parent. The students attend Pheasant Point Elementary School.

She says the bus driver and the driver of the car were taken to hospitals as a precaution.
