Nine students were treated for minor injuries Thursday morning following an accident involving a school bus in western Crawford County.

The students, between the ages of five and fourteen, were taken to hospitals in Greenville and Meadville.  Fifteen other students riding the bus were uninjured.

Police say the bus driver, 45 year-old Melissa Castile from Greenville, told them she swerved toward the berm of the road to make room for oncoming vehicles.  The rear of the bus slid off the highway and swerved into a fence.

The incident occurred on Kibbler Road in East Fallowfeld Township.  The students on the bus all attend either Conneaut Lake Elementary School or Conneaut Lake Middle School.
