Eight people, including five children, were taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries after two cars collided with a school bus Friday morning.

Capt. Russ Davies, Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman, said firefighters were called to Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard near Interstate 97 North in the Ferndale neighborhood at 7:35 a.m.

Davies said two vehicles crashed into the bus as it was traveling on B&A Boulevard.

Schools spokeswoman Maneka Monk said 20 students were on board the bus at the time, which was on its way to Brooklyn Park Middle School.

Davies said five children on the bus and its driver were taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center to be treated for minor injuries.

Monk said the remaining 15 students were taken to school on a second bus and were able to attend classes normally.

The driver and a child from a second vehicle were also taken to Baltimore Washington Medical Center to be treated for minor injuries, Davies said.

The third driver declined treatment for his injuries.

Monk said the parents of the students on the bus have been notified about the accident.

A portion of B&A Boulevard in Glen Burnie was shut down Friday morning as emergency responders handled the crash.
