The bus was owned by the school district and had seat belts, according to Paramus schools superintendent Michele Robinson. Morristown Medical Center and Hackettstown also received patients, though it wasn't clear how many.

A dump truck sits near the scene after a collision with a school bus in Mount Olive, N.J., Thursday, May 17, 2018. He says he thinks something hit a vehicle behind the bus.

It is unclear how many students were aboard the bus.

A student told News 12 that after the bus flipped over that students had to escape through the windows and emergency exits.

The bus is owned by the Paramus Board of Education, the mayor added. She said those two buses made it to Waterloo Village, but they were told by teachers that they had to return to school because of bad weather.

There were 38 students and seven adults on the bus including the driver, according to New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy.

Students at East Brook Middle School, a public school serving roughly 650 students in grades 5 through 8, were picked up early from school - they found out about the accident when other students were crying in the halls. A student and teacher were killed, and 43 others injured.

The bus was apparently filled with children, and multiple injuries are reported.

The front end of the bus was severed from the vehicle and the body of the bus was separated from its chassis, which remained on the highway.

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

Where did the New Jersey school bus crash occur? Mount Olive township confirmed to a local paper that students from their district were not involved.
