Three children, an aide and the driver of a mini-school bus were taken to a hospital with minor injuries after a crash Wednesday morning in Malverne, village police said.

The children were around 10 years old, police said.

“It’s a straight-up accident, no criminality whatsoever,” a police spokesman said.

Police said the crash, which also involved another vehicle, occurred at the intersection of Cornwell Avenue and Horton Street at about 7:45 a.m. Photos from the scene show the front of the Suburban Bus Transportation Inc. bus heavily damaged, with the right front end smashed against a tree.

Firefighters from the Malverne Fire Department also responded to the scene to assist in the rescue.

A representative of Suburban declined to comment, citing an investigation.
