A frightening ride for several students on a school bus on Long Island today. Their bus was involved in a bad accident -- which had deadly results.

Eyewitness News reporter Lauren DeFranco has more from Roslyn Heights.

A terrifying trip for pre-schoolers on the bus who were terrified when the accident occurred. The driver of the Ford that was involved in the accident died.

Witnesses heard the screams of children crying for help.

Police say the driver of the jeep was making a turn when it slammed into the bus. The driver of the bus swerved and crashed into the black Ford which was going in the opposite direction. The bus was carrying several nursery school children who were attending a Shabbat celebration at a nearby temple.

All of the children were treated for minor injuries.
