At least 13 people were injured in a collision involving a school bus and a minivan in the city's Oldtown neighborhood this afternoon, according to the Baltimore Fire Department.
The bus, #1622, was transporting the National Academy Foundation #421's high school girls soccer team, which was en route to Baltimore Polytechnic Institute for an afternoon game, said Edie House Foster, a schools spokeswoman.
Those injured in the accident, which occurred about 3:10 p.m. at the intersection of Ensor and East Madison streets, included 11 students on the bus and the driver and a passenger in the minivan, said Chief Kevin Cartwright, a fire department spokesman.
None of the injuries were considered life-threatening, but students and others complaining of neck and back pains were treated on the scene and transported to local hospitals, Cartwright said.
Some were placed on back-boards and had cervical neck braces placed on them at the scene, Cartwright said.
