The accident happened in the 1400 block of Holland Road, when the school bus had stopped to pick up a student, George said.

While the bus was stopped, it was hit in the rear by a Chrysler.

That vehicle, in turn, was struck from behind by a Dodge van.

The names of the adults driving the three vehicles were not available.
