LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Nearly 20 students from a D.C. school have been hospitalized after a school bus accident in Montgomery County, authorities say.

The accident occurred near the intersection of River Road and Seven Locks Road in Bethesda at about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday, according to Montgomery County Police.

A group of fifth-grade students from Beers Elementary School in Southeast Washington were returning home from a field trip to the German American School when their bus got into a three-vehicle accident, according to a statement from D.C. Public Schools.

WNEW’s Cameron Thompson says the bus rear-ended a Ford Mustang that was stopped at a red light, pushing the Mustang into the vehicle in front of it.

A total of 19 students were transported onto a medical ambulance bus and taken to the hospital for evaluation of minor injuries.

One adult also was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
