CENTRAL ISLIP, Long Island (WABC) -- An occupied school bus overturned following a collision with another vehicle and ended up on the front lawn of a Long Island home Thursday morning.

Police say a 2007 Honda Civic was traveling westbound on Locust Avenue in Central Islip when it struck the side of the school bus, which was heading south on Route 111, around 11:15 a.m.

There were seven children on the bus, all ages 5 and 6, and any injuries were said to be minor.

They were transported to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip and Southside Hospital in Bay Shore for evaluation.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
