BURRILLVILLE, R.I. (WPRI) — Three children and two adults were taken to the hospital Thursday morning after a school bus and a minivan collided in Burrillville.
The crash occurred around 8:15 a.m. at the intersection of Camp Dixie and Eagle Peak roads, according to Burrillville Police Maj. Albert Carlow.
Two students and the drivers of the bus and the minivan were transported for what appeared to be minor injuries, Carlow said. All four were able to walk to the ambulances on their own.
A third student was later taken to the hospital for evaluation, Carlow added.

The remaining students were transferred to another bus and taken to school where they were greeted by parents and administrators, according to Carlow.
Burrillville Superintendent Michael Sollitto told 12 News the students were from Austin T. Levy and William L. Callahan elementary schools.
Carlow said the crash is being investigated, but it appeared that sun glare was a factor.
