3 high school buses crash; 34 teens sent to hospital

Three school buses crashed into one another Monday afternoon in Upper Marlboro, sending 34 high schoolers to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Paramedics triaged 75 students on the scene, according to Prince George's County Fire and Emergency Medical Services spokesman Mark Brady. The buses had just left Frederick Douglass High School and were loaded with teenagers headed home when they rear-ended one another at a low speed, Brady said in a news release.

The buses were in line at a traffic light on the 7600 block of Croom Road, near Route 301. "All injuries are considered very minor," the release said, adding that parents of the transported children were notified.
