The driver tried to swerve left to avoid a collision but was unable to prevent a crash.

"The rear end of the U-Haul hit the right side of the school bus by the rear axle, causing it to spin and ultimately roll onto its left side blocking both traffic lanes," Zubieta said.

One of the children who was seriously injured suffered a laceration to the head, and the other possibly had a broken leg, he said.

Parents were contacted by school and transportation officials, and came to the scene of the accident to pick up their children, Zubieta said.

The crash remained under investigation.
