Emergency crews responded to the scene of a crash involving a school bus along I-495 in Wilmington, Delaware Thursday morning.

Police say around 7:30 a.m. the school bus collided with a pickup truck just north of I-95.

According to a school district spokesperson, two of the student have been treated and released. Two others remain at the hospital for treatment and tests.

Neither driver was injured in the crash.
