FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A frightening call for Lee County parents, and we're working to find out how a few students are doing after their school bus was involved in a crash Friday.

It happened around 9 a.m. on Winkler Road south of Summerlin Road, near Temple Beth-El.  That's where witnesses say a bus slammed into an SUV. 

The school district says four students were on board at the time, and two of them were taken to the hospital. They were both released a short time later.

One man, who was taking his grandson to school at the time of the crash, says he saw multiple ambulances on scene.  "I counted at least 5 or 6 that came in, and it looks like they are looking kids into it, but I haven't been close enough to see what's going on there," said Waheed Khan

It's still not clear exactly how serious the student's injuries are, and we still don't know who was at fault in the crash.
