More than a dozen 7th and 8th grade students were taken to nearby hospitals after their Pasadena, Texas school bus collided  with a pickup truck this morning on their way to school.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Genoa Red Bluff Road and Old Genoa Red Bluff Road while the Texas school bus was driving toward Bondy Intermediate School in the Pasadena Independent School District.

13 or more of the 44 students on board the bus were taken to hospitals but no one appeared seriously injured.

Information about what caused the wreck was not immediately available.
