PRINCETON, New Jersey — Three adults and a teenager suffered minor injuries when a school bus and car collided in Princeton, causing the bus to overturn.

The accident happened shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday on Route 206.

Princeton police say a car driven by 26-year-old Justin Thomas, of Morris Plains, was northbound near Hutchinson Drive when his BMW struck the left front bumper of the southbound bus, which is owned by Ewing-based Rick Bus Co.

The bus flipped over onto its right side, while the BMW spun around.

Thomas and the three people aboard the bus — the driver, 44-year-old Veronica McKinney of Trenton, 71-year-old teachers' aide Geneva Smith and a 16-year-old student — were all treated at a hospital.

Authorities say the student attends a private school for disabled students in Montgomery.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation. No charges have been filed.
