    A school bus was involved in a crash in Andover, Massachusetts, Thursday afternoon, officials confirmed.

    The crash happened around 2:20 p.m. on Red Spring Road, near Moraine Street.

    School officials said a minivan with two occupants hit the bus, which was carrying about 20 Andover High School students at the time.

    When police arrived, they said they found the bus turned sideways in the road, blocking both lanes of traffic. The bus had come to a stop with its gear against a guardrail and its front on a dirt embankment, stopping just short of hitting a utility pole.

    Sky Ranger video from the scene showed the school bus semi-overturned and in a ditch. A tow truck could be seen taking away at least one other vehicle from the scene.

    The occupants of the minivan were also uninjured, but the vehicle sustained front-end damage.

    Following the crash, Andover Public School officials responded to assess the situation and tend to the students. Parents were called and arrived on scene to pick up their children.
