A Palm Beach County school bus was involved in a two-vehicle wreck Thursday morning, which sent students to the hospital.

The school district said the crash occurred at the intersection of Benoist Farms and Belvedere roads just before 9 a.m. while the bus was headed to Jeaga Middle School.

The students went on to school after the accident.

According to a written statement from sheriff's office spokesman Eric Davis, seven students were later taken to an area hospital with minor injuries.

However, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Capt. Albert Borroto said three patients were transported to local hospitals from the crash.  

Borroto said he did not know if the patients were from the bus or the other vehicle involved.
