Ever wondered how school buses keep kids safe without seatbelts? The National Transportation Safety Board explains compartmentalization, and the enhanced safety benefit of lap/shoulder belts on school buses.

Seven A.C. Flora High School students and a bus driver were taken to the hospital with minor injuries when a school bus collided with a private vehicle in front of the school, according to Richland School District One.

Six of the students were taken to the hospital by EMS while the seventh was taken by a parent, according to spokeswoman Karen York. Eighteen students were on the bus at the time.

The accident happened mid-afternoon Tuesday on Falcon Drive, which runs in front of the school.
