Six children suffered minor injuries when the school bus they were riding in swerved off the road as the driver tried to avoid a deer in the roadway.
The accident occurred around 3 p.m. Monday in Hamilton Township in Mercer County.
Officials say the bus was carrying students who were headed home from St. Gregory the Great Academy. It was not immediately clear how many students were on the bus, but officials say they were all fourth- to eighth-graders.
It was not clear if the bus driver was injured in the crash. Authorities say the bus left the roadway and ended up lying against an embankment in a ditch.
Authorities say many parents rushed to the accident scene to see if their children were among the injured.
