Forty students were aboard the Maconaquah district bus, which was preparing to stop to pick up more students on the 3000 block of South State Road 19 around 8 a.m.

According to Indiana State Police, the driver of the truck, 25-year-old Todd McFarland, was following too closely and failed to stop in time. He was taken to Dukes Hospital with a chin cut.
