Six Pittsburgh Public Schools students received what city paramedics described as minor injuries Tuesday when a school van was involved in a collision with another vehicle in East Liberty.

The children complained of neck and back injuries following the wreck at 4:30 p.m. at the intersection of Hays Way and North Negley Avenue, county emergency dispatchers were told.

The six — four girls and two boys between the ages of 8 and 14 — were transported to Children's Hospital in Lawrenceville for treatment, paramedics told dispatchers. They are all students at Pittsburgh Arlington PreK-8, city schools spokeswoman Ebony Pugh said.
