WATERTOWN, Mass (WBZ NewsRadio) — Five Watertown Public Schools children and a driver are recovering in a hospital after a serious school bus crash on Wednesday morning.

Police said the crash happened at Belmont and Lexington Streets. Photos from the scene showed a white MINI Cooper with smashed windows and a destroyed front bumper.

In an email to parents, Watertown Superintendent Dr. Dede Galdston said the crash happened at about 8:05 AM, and that the bus was on the way to the Lowell West School.

The driver of the MINI was taken to an area hospital with what police called "non-life threatening" injuries. 44 elementary school students were on the bus during the crash, and the ones that weren't taken to the hospital with minor injuries were reunited with their parents after the crash.

Solar glare is thought to be a factor.
