A student and adult chaperone are dead after a full-size school bus collided with a dump truck on a major New Jersey highway Thursday, a violent accident that ripped the undercarriage completely off the bus and left it demolished on its side in the median, sources with knowledge of the investigation tell News 4. Other injured people have been taken to area hospitals for treatment.

Mount Olive Township is about 50 miles west of New York City.

The school bus and dump truck crashed on Interstate-80 near Exit 25, in Morris County's Mount Olive Township, New Jersey State Police confirm.

Paramus Public Schools says the bus was taking students from East Brook Middle School to Waterloo Village, near the crash scene.

The Democratic governor went to the school. It happened around 9:30 a.m. with a bus carrying middle school students from the Paramus school district.

Greenbaum said he received an emergency response notification that people were possibly ejected in the crash, though he couldn't say from which vehicles. Two people have suffered life-threatening injuries but the extent of the others is not known.

According to the school's calendar, a Grade 5 day trip to Waterloo Village in Stanhope was scheduled for today.

State police said they are on scene but are not releasing further information at this time. In an interview with WABC, Mount Olive Mayor Rob Greenbaum called the accident "horrific".

As multiple Fifth Graders arrived to Hackettstown Medical Center, St. Joseph's University Medical Center and St. Clare's Health in Dover and Denville, the exact number and their conditions is still unknown.

"People who I'm close friends with, who have brothers and sisters on that bus, started crying, and everybody just started sympathizing", Garcia said.
