An early-morning school-bus crash resulted in several Penn Hills School District students being sent to area hospitals.

The crash occurred just before 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning near the intersection of Lynwood and Marose drives, according to Penn Hills emergency personnel. The bus slid on the icy road surface and struck a telephone pole.

About 10 children were evaluated by paramedics and while some were released into the custody of the school district, several were taken to area hospitals, according to Penn Hills EMS Supervisor Diane Fitzhenry.

First Student Area General Manager Phil Eades said the sudden snowfall made the roads tougher to handle.

“The way that the snow arrived (Monday) morning and the type of conditions that developed, in rapid fashion, presented us and everyone else with a difficult driving situation,” Eades said.
