A bus carrying 22 Metco students home to Boston from the Ephraim Curtis Middle School in Sudbury this afternoon overturned after a crash with a pickup truck at the Weston/Waltham line on Rte. 128, State Police and Sudbury School Superintendent Anne Wilson report.
State Police report ten of the students suffered minor injuries but that all were taken to local hospitals as a precaution after the crash at 12:47 p.m. The bus driver and a bus monitor were also taken to a local hospital for observation.
All the students were expected to have been released by late afternoon, State Police say.
Preliminary investigation by Troop H of the Massachusetts State Police indicates that the bus was traveling southbound, south of the exit for Route 20 (Exit 26), when a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado, also being operated southbound, collided with the bus. The impact caused the bus to veer to the right and roll over the guardrail onto an embankment leading to a stone ledge.
