The accident took place just before 8 a.m. in Savannah, N.Y., which is about 30 miles west of Syracuse. The two students who were most badly injured in the crash, an 11-year-old boy and a girl, were sitting in the front of the Clyde-Savannah Central School District bus.

The two seriously hurt children were reportedly trapped in the bus for half an hour, and the bus driver was stuck in there for an hour, according to AP.

The front of the bus sustained severe damage, and 16 children were treated and released from a local hospital. The children with the most serious injuries were moved to a Rochester, N.Y., hospital.
