Fifteen children were taken to the hospital after a school bus accident in Plymouth, the town's school board chairman said Thursday afternoon. The children from West Elementary School were taken to be checked out "just as a precaution," said Dennis Begley, who said he had just been briefed by Superintendent Gary E. Maestas. "All of their parents have been notified," he said. Other children aboard the bus have already been taken home, he said. Plymouth Police Captain John Rogers said the students were taken to the hospital after complaints of pain, but they had no apparent injuries. The crash happened between the bus and a sedan at 3:45 p.m. at 350 Carver Road, Rogers said. Neither of the drivers was injured. "It was a low-speed and low-impact accident," he said. Rogers said the accident was under investigation.
