Five students at Harpeth Hall in Nashville were transported to area hospitals Friday after an SUV collided with a school bus.
School spokesperson Joanne Mamenta said the two vehicles were transporting eighth graders on a field trip when the SUV rear-ended the bus around 1 p.m. in the 200 block of Hillwood Boulevard in west Nashville.
Five students went to local area hospitals to be checked out for injuries. The rest of the students involved in the accident returned to campus.
Authorities say wet roads were likely a factor.
The roadway was shut down while crews cleared the scene. It has since reopened.
