All the passengers were taken to area hospitals, including two who were flown for treatment by helicopter.

A Pennsylvania charter bus company crashed Monday morning on I-95 in Maryland, injuring 26 Philadelphia school children and four adults. Police say one child and one adult were flown to hospitals and others are being taken to hospitals by ambulance.

Twenty-five kids and three adults were taken to Upper Chesapeake, Harford Memorial and Christiana Care in DE for treatment.

Information about the cause of the crash was not immediately available, but state police said it involved a passenger vehicle. However, the police department suggested that a passenger vehicle was allegedly involved in the incident in some way. In addition, Philadelphia police officers taking buses to Washington, D.C., spotted the crash and stopped to help, Fox 45 added.

Students on the bus were traveling from C.W. Henry School, a K-8 school in Mt.

Police have not released any conditions on the victims but they say there are no fatalities. Authorities are still investigating.

All southbound lanes are blocked, and are expected to remain closed for at least three hours for investigation and cleanup. One child and one adult were airlifted to area hospitals for treatment of serious injuries, according to media reports.

Havre de Grace is about 40 miles northeast of Baltimore, along the Susquehanna River. A spokesperson for the Werner told the Sun it was still gathering information about the bus and incident. Check back for details.
