DEERFIELD, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Minor injuries were reported from an accident involving two trucks and a Lake Villa school bus on Interstate 94 near Deerfield Wednesday morning.

As of 10 a.m., 15 ambulances were on the way to the crash on southbound I-94 near Deerfield Road, according to an Illinois State Police Tollway District sergeant.

At 9:36 a.m., a two-axle box truck hit a Durham School Services bus loaded with students from Palombi Middle School traveling in a caravan with other school buses, said Illinois State Police Sgt. Timothy Moore.

Twenty of the 43 children on the bus were injured, but none of the injuries seem to be life-threatening, Moore said.

The injured were taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Lake Forest Hospital, Highland Park Hopsital and Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Moores said.

The condition of the drivers is unknown. The vehicles remained upright, Moore said, but all the vehicles involved had to be towed.

Lake Villa School District 41 Superintendent John Van Pelt said the students were on a field trip to a Chicago Wolves hockey game at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont.
