SNOW CAMP, N.C. -- Twelve students were injured in a school bus crash in Alamance County Wednesday morning, according to Highway Patrol Master Trooper Chris Knox.

The wreck occurred around 7:29 a.m. at Beale Road and Mt. Hermon Rock Creek Road in the Snow Camp area of Alamance County. The bus was carrying 41 students from Southern Alamance Middle School and Southern Alamance High School.

Trooper Knox says a passenger vehicle, driven by 25-year-old Tatyana Johnson, of Burlington, pulled out in front of the bus, driven by 77-year-old Thomas Privette, of Liberty, and the bus crashed into some trees.

Nine students were treated at the scene, six middle school students were taken to Alamance Regional Medical Center after the treatment and one high school student was taken to Cone Memorial Hospital. All student injuries were minor.

Both drivers suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The students and drivers have since been treated and released.
