CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Excessive speed is believed to be a factor in a multi-vehicle crash Monday afternoon involving a school bus that injured nearly a dozen people, including a 12-year-old girl in critical condition, Cincinnati police said. 

Officers responded to the accident about 2:30 p.m. in the 5700 block of Winton Road.

Robert Jett, 23, was driving a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria northbound on Winton Road when he tried to pass a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu and lost control, police said.

Jett's vehicle struck the back of a third vehicle, a 2005 Dodge Neon, causing it to cross the double yellow line into the southbound lane and strike a 2002 International Yellow School Bus.

The bus spun before a silver Ford Taurus.

Three people were trapped in the Neon: a man, a 1-year-old boy, and a 2-year-old boy, according to police. The man became trapped and had to be extricated by emergency crews. 

The 2-year-old was thrown from the vehicle, said a police spokesman, Lt. Steve Saunders.

All three were hospitalized in serious condition.

Ten children in all were hurt on the school bus, including a 12-year-old girl who was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital in critical condition, police said.

Nine other children on the bus were also hospitalized, though police say those injuries do not appear to be serious.

The 40-year-old school bus driver was also hospitalized.

She is listed in fair condition, police say.

Charges are pending against Jett, according to our partners at the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Any witnesses to this crash are asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Department’s Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.
