'Horrific' school bus crash in New Jersey

A school bus taking children on a field trip to a New Jersey historic site collided with a dump truck Thursday, ripping the bus apart and killing one adult and one child, officials said.

"This morning, East Brook Middle School students on their way to Waterloo Village were involved in a serious bus accident on Route 80 in Mount Olive, NJ".

New Jersey governor Phil Murphy said his heart is "broken" after the incident.

A red dump truck with a mangled front end was parked along the highway nearby, about 50 miles west of NY. The student said that the other children were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.

Faltings said the front of the dump truck appeared to have been sheared off and the school bus was "ripped off its frame" after hitting a guardrail and flipping over.
