FORT DRUM — A bus from the Indian River Central School District was involved in an accident on Wednesday morning on Fort Drum with minor injuries to two students.

Superintendent James Kettrick said a vehicle hit the school bus from behind. The accident happened at about 8 a.m. near Sicily Road and Forsythe Loop.

There were 14 children on the bus. Two students were taken by ambulance to Samaritan Medical Center as a precaution, Mr. Kettrick said.

The accident happened while the students boarded the bus. Several parents arrived at the scene shortly after it occurred, Mr. Kettrick said. Half of the remaining children attended school on Wednesday while six were released to their parents.

A school nurse and the transportation director were on the scene.
