A utility van struck a tree after colliding with their rear of a PGCPS school bus.
It was a close call for two dozen Prince George's County children aboard a school bus Monday, as a collision with a service van left a driver in critical condition.
At 8:15 a.m. this morning at the 8300 block of Indian Head Highway, a small work minivan veered onto a service road, striking a Prince George's County school bus headed for Oxon Hill Middle School in the rear, before then striking a tree head-on.
"The driver of the minivan was actually trapped in the vehicle," said Corporal Mike Rodriguez with Prince George's County Police. "The fire department responded, and got him out."
Once that happened, the driver was flown in critical condition to an area hospital. The driver and three of the students were also taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
