It involved a Cardinal Local Schools bus and two other vehicles, according to WOIO in Cleveland.

Middlefield Fire Department officials told WOIO that a sanitary truck hit the stopped bus because the sun was in the driver’s eyes. A second truck then hit the back of the truck.

Fire officials on the scene said six children were taken to local hospitals by their parents to be checked out. The school district later clarified to WOIO that there were only four children on the bus and none of them were hurt.

The driver of the sanitary truck and the other truck also suffered minor injuries.
