Nine children in New Jersey were injured this morning when a school bus driver smashed into a liquor store following a collision with an SUV driver.
The crash occurred in Irvington, NJ, at around 8:30 a.m. this morning. Investigators say the bus driver, who was transporting the children to the Mt. Carmel Guild School in West Orange, sped across an intersection alongside an SUV driver before crashing into the store. The SUV, meanwhile, struck a hedge.

Thankfully, none of the children, all of whom were between ages 3 and 11, were seriously injured, though they were treated at local hospitals. The bus driver was also treated at a local hospital for leg pain. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the crash—the driver told authorities she "experienced a total brake failure" at the time.
