  • HORROR IN NJ: School Bus & Dump Truck Collide On Route 80; Fatalities Reported, Many Injured

A deadly collision in New Jersey killed a child and teacher when a dump truck crashed into a school bus carrying students on their way to a field trip.

Mount Olive Mayor Rob Greenbaum described the crash scene as "horrific".

"Some patients are in critical condition and now undergoing surgery, so please keep everybody in your prayers", Governor Murphy said.

Police declined to release details about how the crash happened, but it occurred on a stretch of highway just past the exit for Waterloo Village, where the group from East Brook Middle School was headed. Photos and videos from the scene of the incident show the body of the bus was ripped from its chassis.

A Mendez-owned dump truck driven by a driver police say had a suspended license struck and killed a French fashion stylist in Manhattan in January 2011, according to court records.

Fifth-grade student Theo Ancevski was sitting in the fourth row of the bus and was treated at a hospital for cuts and scrapes. He told reporters he escaped through an emergency door on the bus.

"A lot of people were screaming and hanging from their seat belts", he said. US fifth-graders are generally aged 10 or 11. Route 80 is closed in both directions in the area, police said.

The Morris County prosecutor's office confirms "there are fatalities as a result of this crash" but hasn't said how many. "There were all kinds of injuries, every injury type you could expect in a crash of this magnitude". "It's tragic", he told reporters. The front of the bus has also been completely destroyed. He told HLN on Thursday there were possible ejections in the crash.

Paramus school officials said the borough's schools would be open Friday and that crisis counselors would be on hand.

Paramus is about 10 miles west (15 km) of upper Manhattan.
