  • The wrecked school bus in New Jersey

The bus was transporting students from East Brook Middle School in Paramus, New Jersey, according to a school official.

"There's an incredible emergency response from throughout Morris County and by State Police".

The front end of the bus was severed from the vehicle and the body of the bus was separated from its chassis, which remained on the highway.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy arrived at the scene just before 2 p.m. ET then headed to the school.

He said he looked around at his East Brook Middle School classmates, some not moving but others heading for the exits in a bus that was on its side.

This item has been corrected to show the governor went to the school, not the scene of the crash; it's unclear if he went to the scene. "These (previous accidents) should be eye-openers for the company, for them to say, 'hey, we need to do something before the big one happens.' Sadly, it looks like maybe it has".

Waterloo Village is a historic site depicting a Lenape Indian community and once-thriving port along the Morris Canal in northwestern New Jersey. It is unknown how many children were on the bus.

The bus leaned against a crushed metal guardrail with the front cab torn and twisted away.

Robinson said that the district was cancelling school trips for the rest of the year. NBC 4 also reported that a spokesperson said the emergency departments of Dover Hospital and Saint Clare's Denville Hospital have received 10 patients; there was no information yet available on their ages or injuries.

Crews loaded the wrecked bus onto a flat-bed truck on Thursday night.

Mount Olive Mayor Rob Greenbaum called the accident "horrific" in an interview with ABC New York station WABC-TV.

"[The bus] entered westbound Interstate 80 from southbound U.S. Highway 206", according to that account.
