Eight children were take to hospital with minor injuries Monday morning after their school bus was involved in an accident.

A school bus belonging to the Sikh Academy, a private school, was heading westbound on 91A Avenue when it crossed 152 Street at 7:35 a.m., and collided with a White Ford Ranger pick-up.

The bus was sent into a ditch.

According to police, all eight kids and the driver were sent to hospital with minor injuries, mostly bumps and bruises.

"It appears as though the school bus may have disobeyed a traffic control device, we're still looking at that," police said.

The driver of the other vehicle was also taken to hospital with minor neck and head injuries.

Charges against the bus driver are being reviewed, police said.
