Maryland State Police say the accident, which involved a school bus and two cars, happened at about 8:30 a.m. between Shady Grove Road and Montgomery Road.

Montgomery County Fire Capt. Oscar Garcia says that preliminary reports indicate that a car collided with the school bus.

Four people on the Montgomery County school bus, including the driver, an eight and nine-year-old child and an aide, were injured in the crash, officials say. The driver's injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

Montgomery County Public Schools spokesperson Dana Tofig says the bus was taking students to The Ivymount School, a special-needs school in Rockville.

The drivers of each car were also taken to Suburban Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
