Manchester Police Captain Lisa Parker says a 2003 red Honda Accord was exiting the driveway of Manchester High School when it collided with the school bus.

The driver of the Honda, a 17 year old female from the Pine Lake Park section of the Township, had just dropped off her younger brother at the school.

The school bus was being operated by Kathleen White, 59, from Whiting, who is a Manchester Board of Education employee.

Three children on the school bus were transported to Community Medical Center in Toms River for complaints of pain. The 17 year old driver was also treated for a complaint of head pain.

Both vehicles were significantly damaged and had to be towed from the scene. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
