CLINTON TOWNSHIP — A school bus carrying 17 students overturned after hitting a boulder and wrecking a stone building on Wednesday.

Police said there were no serious injuries in the crash but two students and the driver were taken to a hospital to be checked.

The bus was on Haytown Road when it struck the stone alongside the roadway.

The bus was left resting on its left side with a pronounced dent in its front bumper.

NBC 4 New York reported the building, which collapsed in the crash, was considered historic.

Best coffee shops & cafes near NJ beaches

When it comes to food, New Jersey is known for many things such as pizza and pork roll. Don't count us out when it comes to coffee.

With all the hustle and bustle involved in the average New Jersey resident's day, coffee is essential. It doesn't matter whether you're living in the cities of North Jersey or the vacation spots at the shore.

In fact, as the former owner of two Jersey shore coffee houses, Coffee Dot Comedy in Sea Isle City and the Daily Grind in Ocean Grove, I know firsthand how much people at the Jersey shore love their coffee.

With respect to that, I asked my social media following where the best coffee houses at the Jersey Shore were, especially since my two places no longer exist.

Below is what they came up with. (And see this other article for their coffee shop and cafe recommendations for Central Jersey.)
