HALIFAX -- Two students were sent to hospital, and a driver is facing charges, after a cargo truck collided with a school bus in Brooklyn, N.S.
The RCMP say the crash happened on Highway 14 shortly after 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Kristen Loyst, a spokesperson for the Annapolis Valley Regional Centre for Education, says there were six high-school students on the bus at the time of the crash.
Two students sustained minor injuries and were taken to hospital as a precaution.
Loyst says the other four students were picked up by another bus and taken to Avon View High School in Windsor.
The driver of the cargo truck has been charged with failing to yield to a vehicle already in the intersection.
