ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque school police are investigating the crash of two school buses that sent as many as 10 kids to the hospital with what are believed to be minor injuries.
Albuquerque Public Schools officials are saying one bus hit another shortly after Washington Middle School on Park Avenue SW dismissed for the day.
There were about 30 students on each bus when one of the buses apparently struck the other from behind.
No major injuries were reported, and eight to 10 students complaining of back and neck pain were taken by ambulance to a hospital, according to Albuquerque police and APS.
"They were complaining about headaches, neck pain, back pain," APS Communications Director Monica Armenta said. "There are also two students whose parents said they wanted them to be checked out at the hospital, but we have no way of confirming right now if those two actually made it to the hospital."
The extent of their injuries is not known, but one student told KRQE News 13 the impact threw her forward in her seat.
Albuquerque police and fire units responded, and APS police have taken over the investigation of the crash, which happened on school grounds.
The buses are owned by the Beal Bus Company, which placed both drivers on paid leave.
