A van crashed into a South Carolina school bus Thursday, and 10 students were taken to an area hospital.
The driver of the van, who was trapped for about 30 minutes before fire crews extracted him, was also taken to the hospital and later cited for the incident.
The crash occurred in Spartanburg at about 8 a.m., according to multiple reports.
A Spartanburg School District 7 bus was turning right off Chesnee Highway when a plumbing van collided with the right, back corner of the bus, pinning the driver of the van inside, said Whitney Area Fire Chief Shawn Petras, goupstate.com reported.

Sixteen students were on the bus heading to Whitlock Flexible Learning Center, and 10 were taken to the hospital as a precaution. The remaining students were taken to school on another bus, District 7 spokeswoman Sally Hammond said, according to wyff4.com.
None of the injuries are life threatening, according to Trooper Joe Hovis with the South Carolina Highway Patrol, wspa.com reported.
The students “appear to be in good shape, but we just want to be sure with an abundance of caution that everyone is OK,” Hammond said, goupstate.com reported.
The driver of the van was cited for driving too fast for conditions, according to wspa.com.
