At least 3 injured after school bus collides with vehicle in Pennsauken Township, NJ

The accident happened around 3 p.m. near the intersection of E. Springfield and River roads.
PENNSAUKEN TWP., New Jersey (WPVI) -- Police in South Jersey are investigating a crash involving a school bus that left three people injured on Wednesday afternoon.

It happened around 3 p.m. near the intersection of E. Springfield and River roads in Pennsauken Township.

Chopper 6 was overhead after a bus collided with at least one vehicle. Children were seen being transported off the school bus following the accident.

Video obtained by Action News shows the school bus come to a stop at the intersection. Seconds later you can see a vehicle slam right into the bus.

The impact from the crash sent one woman flying into the air. Police confirm her injuries are severe but she's expected to survive.

"We were just sitting on the couch like normal and we just heard tires screeching and then we heard the boom," said Emily Cuevas.

Cuevas and Anthony Tomaselli ran out to help and say the woman who was directly hit appeared to at least have a major leg injury.

The injured woman's daughter and another adult suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Tomaselli and Cuaves say something needs to be done to increase safety.

"People are always speeding down this road," said Cuevas.

"I almost get hit even when we're coming in to just park and stuff," said Tomaselli.

It's still unclear if any charges will be filed in the case.
