Children are among the 15 injured in a crash that involved a school bus in rush hour traffic Wednesday morning on East Independence near Hawthorne Lane.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools says bus 1654 was bound for Collinswood Elementary School with 14 children onboard when it was involved in the collision at 8:45 a.m.

In total, 14 people were transported Novant Presbyterian Hospital, 12 with minor injuries, two with potentially life-threatening injuries. A CMS spokesperson could not confirm how many of the injured were children.
