BALTIMORE STANDING TOGETHER: Watch town hall Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. on WJZ, as leaders address issues the city is facing.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Two school buses have collided head on in northeast Washington, and at least nine people are being transported to area hospitals, including several students.

D.C. fire department spokesman Pete Piringer says the buses crashed Thursday afternoon on Eastern Avenue near Booth Lane. One bus was from D.C. schools and the other was from Prince George’s County.

Piringer says two adults are seriously injured, a male and a female. They are thought to be the bus drivers. Two other adults and five children are being taken to hospitals as a precaution but are not seriously injured.

The children appear to be pre-teens. It wasn’t immediately clear what schools they were from.

Authorities say Eastern Avenue is closed in the area while an investigation continues.
