Several students from Pearl River Middle School have been transported to area hospitals for examination following a school bus crash with another vehicle.

According to Lt. David Mellin with the Orangetown Police, the crash took place early Thursday afternoon on Center Street in Pearl River.

Pearl River Schools Superintendent Marco Pochintesta said four students were hospitalized for evaluation.

"The remaining students were either picked up at the scene or were transported home on a replacement bus," Pochintesta said.
