Two children and one adult suffered minor injuries when a school bus and a car collided in northwestern New Jersey.

Authorities say the three were taken to a hospital after Tuesday's crash in Hackettstown, along with six other children who were sent there just as a precaution.

A 6-year-old child had a leg and hand injury, while a 7-year-old had a knee injury. The 96-year-old woman driving the car was being treated for chest pains.

The accident occurred around 11:50 a.m. on Route 46. Authorities say the bus was stopped to make a turn when it was rear-ended by the car.

The bus was carrying several children who were taking part in a summer program held at an elementary school in the Warren County community.

The accident remains under investigation.
