According to the New York State Troopers at the Greenville barracks in Orange County, it was around 9 p.m. Tuesday night when troopers were dispatched to a report of a collision involving a Minisink Valley School bus and a Hyundai Elantra on Interstate 84 in the area of milepost marker 23.9 in the town of Wallkill.
As Troopers arrived on the scene, thankfully all the school bus and car occupants were standing waiting on the shoulder of the roadway because soon after they arrived both the car and school bus became fully engulfed in fire according to a press release. Police say that no injuries were reported due to the crash or fire and no one required medical attention.
