New Jersey student, teacher killed after bus collides with truck

The dump truck seemed to be mostly intact, images from the crash scene showed.

The body of the bus came completely off its chassis and was resting on its side in the highway median. The undercarriage with the bus wheels lies perpendicular to the overturned bus, stretching out over multiple lanes of the highway. Forty-three people from the bus and the truck driver were taken to three area hospitals.

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.

Thuy Nguyen, a nurse from Paramus, said she rushed to the school where her son was taking a test after hearing the news. A fifth-grade class trip from the district was scheduled for Waterloo Village, a historic site about 5 miles away from the crash scene.

The school is located about 22 miles from New York City.

"This morning, East Brook Middle School students on their way to Waterloo Village were involved in a serious bus accident on Route 80 in Mount Olive, NJ", the school district posted on its Facebook page.

At least two of the victims have been sent to St. Joseph's Medical Center in Paterson.

"Please contact Paramus Police for more information at 201-262-3400".

Phone lines at the middle school appeared to be tied up after the crash, and HuffPost was not able to get through.
