NORTH WEBSTER — Northern Indiana authorities say more than 45 middle and high school students were injured and a bus driver was seriously hurt in a chain-reaction crash involving four school buses.

Kosciusko Community Hospital spokeswoman Joy Lohse says 43 people injured in the accident were being treated there. She says none are in serious or critical condition. She says she didn't have any further information on how many of them were students or their exact conditions. A nursing supervisor at IU Health Goshen Hospital says four students being treated there are in good condition.

Sheriff's Department Sgt. Chad Hill says authorities don't know yet the cause of the accident. He says one bus apparently was stopped to let a student off when the accident occurred about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
