Monroe Township, PA (WBNG Binghamton) Four students suffered minor injuries following a three-vehicle crash involving a school bus, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

At approximately 7:10 a.m. Wednesday, a Thomas school bus was stopped on State Route 220 north, picking up a student with its lights flashing red.

A 1993 Ford F-150 pickup truck was stopped behind the school bus.

A northbound 2001 GMC Sierra pickup, driven by Jacob Sick, 28, of Tunkhannock, PA, barreled into the F-150, which jolted forward, striking the school bus.

Fourteen students were on board the bus at the time of the crash. Four of them suffered minor injuries. Paramedics took one of them to the hospital.

None of the drivers were injured.

Troopers plan to cite the driver, Sick, following the investigation.
