Woodcliff Lake, NJ—A school bus driver and thirteen teenagers, seven of whom suffered minor injuries, were transported to area hospitals after a Woodcliff Lake bus crash. The school bus accident occurred along the southbound lanes of Garden State Parkway Tuesday morning, Dec. 7, 2010, according to information provided by NorthJersey.com.

Erline Boyer, 38, was operating the school bus and was en route to Jewish schools in Paramus when he lost control. The bus subsequently careened off the road and into the center median, where it struck a guardrail and trees.

Emergency medical services (EMS) personnel rushed to the scene to transport Boyer, as well as 13 unidentified students, to the Valley Hospital and Hackensack University Medical Center. Seven victims were treated for minor injuries, while the others were merely evaluated as a safety precaution.

New Jersey State Police Capt. Frank Davis said the injurious school bus wreck occurred around 7:20 a.m. Although no traffic citations were issued after the crash, a full investigation was expected to be underway.

The school bus was reportedly impounded so mechanics could determine whether a mechanical issue caused the accident.
