A school bus load of Innisfil high-school students were taken to hospital Wednesday morning, one of whom was airlifted to a Toronto hospital, after a crash between the bus and a pickup truck.

The students were on their way to class at Nantyr Shores Secondary School around 8:10 a.m. when the collision occurred at 5 Sideroad and 4th Line, according to police.

“We’ve got 14 kids on the school bus who were destined for Nantyr. All are being transported to hospital for precautionary measures,” said South Simcoe Police Deputy Chief Robin McElary-Downer in a video posted to Twitter. “One student’s been flown down to Toronto with non-life-threatening injuries.”

South Simcoe police are asking anyone with information about the crash to contact them.

“We’re still investigating as to what actually happened within that intersection,” she said.

Police are asking drivers to avoid the area around the crash site.
