PLYMOUTH - Fifteen children were taken to the hospital Thursday following a crash on Carver Road at Plymouth Street around 3:40 p.m. A bus carrying 30 West Elementary School students was involved in a crash with a sedan near the Carver town line.

Plymouth School Superintendent Gary Maestas told the Old Colony Memorial that the children were taken to the hospital as a precaution. 

There were no serious injuries.

There was significant damage to the front of the sedan and very little visible damage to the school bus.

Plymouth police are investigating the cause of the crash. It is unknown if there will be any charges filed. Neither the driver of the car or the bus driver were identified.
