NAPLES, Fla. - A four vehicle crash involving a school bus sent ten people to the hospital Wednesday morning in Naples.

A car was stopped in the left turn lane of Radio Road at Industrial Boulevard with two other vehicles slowing down behind it.

The bus struck the car in front of it setting off a chain reaction crash.  Six students on the school bus were transported for treatment of minor injuries.  The other four victims were in the cars involved in the crash and also suffered minor injuries.

The driver of the school bus, 69-year-old Alexis Palomeque of Naples, was cited for careless driving.
