UNION, KY (FOX19) -

A school bus crash with preschool children on board was reported Tuesday afternoon in Boone County, authorities said.

It happened just before 12:30 p.m. on U.S. 42 near Meadowlake Way in Union. Seven preschool children were on the school bus when it collided with a pickup truck.

Authorities at the scene said the truck was headed northbound on U.S. 42 when it hit the front of the bus turning onto U.S. 42 from Meadowlake Way.

The truck went off the road upon impact and hit a fence.

The bus driver and a bus aide were transported to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Florence, along with two children. All four were treated and released.

The driver of the pickup truck was flown by medical helicopter to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Their condition was not immediately available.

Authorities said the children on the bus were checked by emergency personnel at the scene. Some parents opted to have their kids checked at the hospital as a precaution, instead of continuing to school.
