New Jersey school bus and truck in head-on collision

The front end of the bus appeared to be crushed or ripped off, and it was sheared off its undercarriage.

Mount Olive police said family members of those involved in the crash should contact Paramus Police at 201-262-3400.

A school bus and a truck have collided on a New Jersey interstate, leaving an unknown number of people injured.

An official tells News 4 the bus came from East Brook Middle School in Paramus, a public school serving roughly 650 students in grades 5-8. He said the body of the bus was nearly completely torn off the vehicle's frame.

The crash happened on I-80 westbound in Mount Olive Township, Morris County, not far over the Warren County line, according to New Jersey State Police.

The school bus had markings for the Paramus School District.

All lanes on Route 80, west of Exit 25, in Mount Olive are closed.

Police have said they are investigating a "serious" accident.

Hackettstown Police Sgt. Darren Tynan told The Record that multiple people were taken to a hospital. "It's a horrific scene", Greenbaum said.

Gov. Murphy has also been briefed on the situation, and the National Transportation Safety Board says it is gathering information on the crash.

No additional details on the children or the nature of the injuries were available.
