A school bus collided with an SUV Monday morning in Corcoran, injuring several young students, the school district’s superintendent said.

The accident occurred about 7:45 a.m. at County Roads 10 and 50 and involved a 4.0 School Services bus heading to Rockford Elementary School, said Superintendent Paul Durand.

Twelve students were taken to Maple Grove Hospital with minor injuries, he said. There were 37 other students who were evaluated by medical personnel and found not to need treatment, he added.

There was no immediate explanation of the circumstances of the crash.
